Today's update........and Blimey was it ever cold !!.....two day's now working in this temperature and I think the cold has got into my bones now Smile

I didn't get as much done as I wanted too ....as the heater channel
that I had prepared (rust proofed) for fitting turned out to be for the other side lol! ....


Also I found sooooo many plates around the rear closing panel for the heater channels ....it took me best part of the morning just cutting them out ....ready for some new metal Cool .....in fact there were about 5 layers of metal plates ....plus a 1/4 inch of filler on the rear quarters ...it must have been about 2 inches wider than stock!! Shocked


anyway here's the pic's

firstly I finished welding in the new inner wing ...however I need to cut and re-position the bottom section as it doesn't meet the vertical gutter like it should ..


Then I drilled out the spot welds on the heater channel



and then rust proofed the inside of it


then I set too on the rear section




then I had to make a simple repair panel...(which didn't fit lol! )


then I measured the door gap ...and tacked in the heater channel






And tomorrow I will be taking it off again ...cos I forgot to put the flexible heating tube on lol! geek

just a little update today ...

welded in the rest of the wing


part of the over lap (on the vertical gutter was rotten)


so i gave it a dose of rust proofing. then welded a strip in to replace the rusty bit


so then after I tack welded every thing in place ,i started on the other side




next time I wil hopefully start on the other a pillar repair Smile

You will have to ask Dave, as I havent been involved at all in this!!.

There was alot (ALOT) more rot in the sill than I had thought, but Dave has done a great job on that, the door pillar, front inner wing, rear quarter panels (left and right), a little in the floor pan, bulk head!! (still the doors to look at!!)
But he has also been working on the front beam!! all I can say is SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEET so far, do you want a taster??
