First of all, I am amazed and inspired to bash my own panels by this and your other projects! I'd been keeping an eye on the Viva thread for a while but only read through this one yesterday, and what did I see parked up at a local garage today? An E12 M535i! ...or at least a replica that passes a drive by inspection from an untrained eye. This is the garage, based in Mansfield auto100.co.uk/
Thanks for the tip on the bottles. I bought a tig welder 2 years ago and it has been sitting useless without a gas bottle as I didn't want to get a contract! I knew you could buy them sans contract but never really found a place where they would make it easy!
