The popularity of the series of videos documenting the build of the Gordon Murray Mk1 Escort made it only too apparent that there’s a desire for more in depth fabrication and engineering content out there, so we thought we’d oblige. The result? ‘The Metalwork Minute’ (and in some cases, a bit), a series of videos detailing the custom fabrication of key sections of Retropower projects, normally starring Stu, our resident ‘Metal Whisperer.’
Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Inner Wings
The first in a new series of short, “no-frills” videos intended to give a greater insight into the kind of metalwork, fabrication and engineering tasks we undertake on a weekly basis. No talking, no music, just workshop action! The episode at the head of this page details Stu as he fabricates an inner front wing for a 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint we are currently restoring.
Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Inner Wheel Arch
This time Stu turns his hand to the creation of the 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s passenger side inner rear wheel arch. Expect plenty of one-off fabrication and some metalwork skills seldom seen in this day and age.
