Welcome to the forum! I'm quite local to you and I might be able to sort you out with welding (It will be Adam who does my welding for me. My welding is like pigeon sh*t!). Sorry I can't be of much more help. As the local AO (Area Organiser) I can spread the word among my local members. Get to the next meeting if you possibly can. Details are in my sig below. The next meeting will take place on the 1st of November.
Don't forget to join the Club. It is worth every penny of the membership fee and you need to be a member to buy the panels that you may need.
