Well tried to work on the car on the week end up ended up making more work to do!!

On inspection of the rear corners...well what can i say..... there where no corners left!! great.

So chassis was lifted off to see what need to come out, new rear quarters of the floor pan and a rear repair panel have been ordered...the other little bits can be made from new steel.

Then about 3pm the gas ran out on the welder, so we gave up for the weekend.

Today i popped off to the local weed centre, sorry hydroponics shop Wink to get a new bottle of CO2. Got back home and finished the patches in the front i was doing when the gas ran out and then moved to the O/S rear corner. Just cut ever bit of rust out and then started on working an old rear inner wing in. got to about 7pm and gave up for the day.

Hoping to get both the corner finished by the weekend so we would have only lost a week Shocked

Right well did a bit of work on the car today. Made up the headlight brackets, welded and painted.

'The Masochist' - Page 6 Masochist058

Dusted over the the inside of the front and the n/s side wing.

'The Masochist' - Page 6 Masochist065

Then carried on with the O/S rear inner wing.

'The Masochist' - Page 6 IMG_3189crap

Who would through this would have been full of filler and some of the worst welding and patch work i have ever seen on a car. However i has made it very easy to remover as most of it comes off in your hands, haha.

Took a section i had in the garage ready to do this job and started making it fit.

'The Masochist' - Page 6 Masochist061

The rest of the panel should be here tomorrow so i will be welding this in.
Shocked
