Cheers guys, I must be honest the sneaky picture does not show the areas of worst damage and it still requires a lot of work to get it as good as its gonna be. It has a couple of splits which cannot really be sorted as I would be reluctant to try to repair very thin stainless without a very good TIG set and alot of hours practice. But it was completely flat for a third of its lenth and I'm quite pleased with it so far. Its half the challenge, picking up the most damaged and getting it back into some shape, makes me think. I'm just trying to get all the small dents and creases out of the middle section which will require making up some custom tools. Will post some more pictures when I'm happy with it.
Steve T, will make a change from horse poo at 50p a bag. I get a kick out of the challenge of repair/restore, it gets a bit brutal somtimes but my opinion is if its crushed anyway how much worse can I make it. I have a 50cal 150 round curved turret ammo box which was pretty flat and have got it pretty good, will put up a photo, as it was from Weybred last year. Hughes tracking is a total ******* to get straight, total finger slashing stuff, but I'm getting a good lenth together.
