Haven’t bought the gas yet so just been practicing without it. Pretty ugly so far
Looks like a trip to Bunnings sometime?

You need different wire for gasless don't you, doesn't it have some kind of flux coating?
I know it's basically impossible to weld with normal wire once the gas runs out!

Go to Bunnings and get the bottle.
Some of the gas suppliers are selling bottles too, so there may be some competition now.
For panel work get 0.6mm wire,
For most everything else you will find 0.9mm will be better.
Your first welds with gas will renew your faith in your abilities.
Gasless has its place, but Ive found that its not much good on anything under 3mm.
You seem to need to get more heat into it to get the best out of it.
Just my opinion. Others may find it different.

Got a new boot floor from rare spares but don’t need it all. Hoping to use some bits of that for the rear floor as I can’t find anyone who makes them. The only other bit is the air duct under the dash on the passenger side. The flange is rusty. Anyone know who makes that bit? Or is it a case of do your own?
Appreciate the advice
Moving along ok so far
