My wife had seen a Lancia Beta Spyder at a classic car show we attended and loved it instantly, I started looking for one to buy for her birthday and I bought my Lancia in June 2007.

At the time I bought the car it had mot and we enjoyed the car for a while taking the roof of whenever we could and we drove the car a lot. I always knew it needed work but did not realise how bad the tin worm was.

It failed its MOT and I found a welder called Paul Baker who took on my car and he went to work on it, Buy the time he was finished the car was solid and flew through its MOT. You can see his work below and there is a link to his website in my website link page.
