Here's my little helper.dont ask me why but the daughter decided to call her treakle Rolling Eyes
[img]
First job was to decide where to start.i chose the rear end lol!
cut out a bit of rot.
[/img]
Then have a go at fabricating some new metal.
[img]
[/img]
[img]
Then tidy it all up a bit.
[/img]
Had to make a piece for the gutter as there wasnt much left.
[img]
Not fantastic.but it should do.

Otherside Shocked
[img]
The welds where so rusty it pinged of when i hit it with a hammer.
So first cut out the grot.
[/img]
Mark up some new shiney metal.
[img]
Weld it in as best i can.
[/img]
[img]
Had to do some metal bending.to make about a foot long bit for the gutter.including the slight angled bit.
[/img]
[img]
All stuck in...
[/img]
And cleaned up a bit.

Despoted the funny panel(dont know what its called)near the rear wheel.
[img]
As it had loads of scank all over it.
[/img]
And lots of old repairs.over the years.and i want it to look a bit better if i can.
First had to make the lip that runs underneath the panel
[img]
[/img]
This is the panel after i cut and welded all the rot out.
[img]
Still eeds a little straightening to finish it right.
Decided not to patch this up.but start with fresh metal.
[/img]
Found a wee bit more.
[img]
Had a go with my baby vice at fabing up a piece to fit.
[/img]
[img]
[/img]
And stuck it in.

Refitted this panel after making up the inner floor/boot bit.
[img]
Just needs cleaning up a bit.
[/img]
This is the inner bit.not too bad now.
Then the usual bits.
[img]
now looks a bit better.
Not bad for G S F. and loads of fettling.
[/img]
Made up the rear cross member sections as best i could.
had nothing here to coppy from so a fair bit of guess work and regigging was needed.hence a couple of pics will see patches here and there over the resto.to try to work out the shape of the bits that are rotted .
[img]
Had to cut of the lip of the knackered old rear valence.soto sqeeze in the bumper mount i got of flee bay.
before.
[/img]
after
[img]
And once both the rear mounts where in place it got a bit tricky for me.
coz i have the rear valance of the blue beetle.but it needed a bit of work.
plus the whole lip thats welds to the engine lid bit was f@@cked so that had to come off the knackered valance but that lip was sound.confussed...so was i...
First despot weld all the bits.and clean up.
[/img]
they where the originals.
Make up some new metal.
[img]
[/img]
Better valance welded to old lip.
[img]
[/img]
Hopefully it will fit........
[img]
[/img]
not too bad..
