Got abit more done on the N/S rear tonight..
The 5" of rear chassis right at the back where it joins the rear panel/and rear inner rear quarter was not there at all.
So i had to cut a section out of the inner rear quarter and the outer rear panel to gain acess to it.
The chassis is now welded and have replaced the section of inner rear quarter that i had to remove..
Also got all the inner arch finished..

Just found that the N/S rear chassis is rotton where the rear beam mounts to, so gonna have to remove the rear beam to replace the section of chassis.. The O/S is fine by the looks of it..

Hell yeah i've spent to many nights in hospital ect with arc eye, i wont weld without a mask anymore..

Got some more done tonight.. Wasn't totally happy with the inner arch so i had to alter it about abit.. Thats all done and ground back now. clamped the outer arch into place and cut the rear quarter out to fit and cleaned up the quarter ready for welding..

Just need to clean up arch and drill the lip ready for some spot welds..

Cheers guys..

Not planning on selling it at the mo, gonna give it to Frizz to beat around in to see if she likes it.. Not sure if she will though after driving the scort for a year with pas aircon and the other stuff shes got in it..

But we'll see... It's not really any good for us only being a 4 seater..

Well i got out the workshop this morning and got on with the N/S outer arch..
Drill the lip and cleaned up the edges.. Clamped it in to place and welded it on.
Ground and sanded back the welds then added a skim of filler..

Well i've dropped the rear beam out so i could inspect the chassis.. Someone had welded plates from the chassis to the beam mounts good job the welds weren't great and just fell off.. lol! lol!
The side i thought was bad isn't really that bad at all just the axel mount and a little hole.. Bonus.. Cool
But the side that i thought was good is completely shot to bits from the back panel to in front of the back arch so the complete section.. Evil or Very Mad

Found a hole in the drivers floor next to the sill..
Both sills have had some kind of repairs done to them that have rotted through..


May be i should get the front end up in the air and give that a good checking before i go any further.. lol! lol! lol! lol!

The vw sealer/underseal is thick as hell under there, the chassis looked mint untill i pushed it and it was soft??? No metal just the sealer..

Wouldn't of liked to have one hit in the rear of it thats for sure...

Just been and checked the front end and the rest of it all seems good so just the chassis to sort then the back arches to finsh bit on the sills repair the front wing then our some paint on it..
MOT it and slam it on some G60 wheels i think..

Rechaecked the rear chassis yesterday and it's just the bottom part of the chassis thats rotton the sides ect are all good....
Don't think i'm gonna bother looking for a complete leg now..
I've measured it all up so i'm gonna buy some steel and fab a complete bottom plate for the drivers side leg.. It's only 1mm steel...

Gonna pull the interior ect out of it then roll it on it's side..

But because it's got no rear beam in it i can't use the roll over frame so gonna need to find some peeps to help me flip her over..

Beam mount repair sections now ordered should be here next week..
