Workshop and workmanship

Dick has a small workshop in town not far from his house.  It's got all the normal security systems you might expect for a place that has some expensive cars in it.  He puts a lot of time and effort into the bodywork and engines to come out with a product that is world-class.

I must admit I wouldn't mind having a workshop like his, though I'd probably use mine for woodwork or carpentry.

But although the painted cars are rather fine, my attention was caught by this bit of bodywork on what is still a metallic shell with primer on.   They have lowered the cabin roof and reduced the size of the rear window, by cutting through the metal about halfway up the window, taking a slice out and welding it back together.  On the outside there is not the slightest hint of a join that I could see.  The picture of the inside of the cabin shows the line of the weld quite clearly.  Nice work.
