After taking the ankle grider to the wing again to cut out the rust, I ended up with a significantly larger hole... oops! Ah well - all nasty rust is gone now!

I decided to weld a patch in from behind, as I thought it would be a neater job... so I did! Then more welds on the other side. Perhaps a bit over kill, but it meant less filler, which can't be a bad thing!


Welded in and half ground down:

A bit of filler was added:

Then panel wiped:

I don't think this bit of profile is right still... but I doubt it'll be too noticable:

I masked off the bits I didn't want to get any primer on, then sprayed it:

I'll put a few more coats of primer on it, then wet sand it and paint it in the morning.

Well it's all good practice, isn't it? And I may as well practice on this, rather than my Newbie! Plus I want it to be reasonably tidy for my test Very Happy

I think I need help..... Surprised

Cheers! Very Happy



I put the wing back on this morning. Still needs a bit of fettling to get it sitting right. The wings are glued on as well as bolted on, so bending the inner part where it bolts on is pretty much unavoidable. But it's gone from having no hope in hell of fitting, to being almost there, so I'm sure a few more pushes in the right diretion once it's settled will get it back into the right place. I still need to wet and dry the wing and polish it, so it's a little duller than the rest of the car at the mo. I also had to loose the side stripes cos they would have given me a thick line showing the difference between where I'd put new paint on and the old paint, so unfortunatly they had to go! Being worried about having a stripe-less car (once I've taken the other stickers off), I had to add more stripes! Very Happy I shall get a pic of him with Robbie later on.

I decided to attack some more of the rust today. Out came the ankle grinder.... as suspected, just bubbling and no holes:

So a skim of filler added:

And primered:

Rear arched primered and rubbed down ready for paint, but I can't find the can!

Got some paint on this evening:
Meet Foxy the Polo! - Page 2 PIC_0168yu

I've done another couple coats after this one:
Meet Foxy the Polo! - Page 2 PIC_0169yu

For my first go at colour matching I'm rather chuffed with myself! Very Happy It's far from perfect, but I think it would be pretty hard to match 14yr old paint with a rattle can perfectly!

Cheers guys, I'm really, really chuffed at how well it's come out! I've never done little repairs before, or tried to match paint and suprised how easy it is to do a reasonable repair! It's given me so much more confidence!
