Got another couple of hours on her today so stripped O/S wings off to see what had been hidden on that side

Front inner arch replacement is a bodge up same as near side so will have to come off and be redone Mad

Repairs need to be made to heater channel where it mets front arch

Project No Money DSC_01402

Bottom edge of rear quarter looked good but turned out that the bottom edge was fiberglass
Project No Money DSC_01452

And previous repairs to heater channel closing panel still atached to floor pan, but closing panels have been replaced Surprised

rear corner has had a bad repair to quarter panel to in arch, plate has been put in but there are atill big holes around it and lots of filler affraid
Project No Money DSC_01462

Haven't gone much further just took glass out screen surrounds are all good and rear cargo area carpeting, and the firewall is good Cool

Project No Money DSC_01662

But did find find filler in the rain gutters so dug it out to find the were rotten but repairable

Looks like whoever done the work was a master at seam sealer/filler/fibreglass welding lol!

Made most of yesterdays sunshine, pushed her outside and stripped out the interior and carpets....to find lots of seam sealer

Project No Money DSC_0153
Both rear arches are like this as is the rear cross member and where the heater channels meet the rear quarters......going on what i'd found out side this wasn't a good sign so set about digging it all out!!
Some of it turned out to be and inch or so thick affraid

Under the sealer I found more bad news as expected.....alot of work has been done to the car in the past but none of it has been welded in properly it all only spot welded then made to look good with sealer, even around the seat belt mounting points affraid

Project No Money DSC_0188

Basically it has a lot of repair panels put in that need to be finished properly or started again, Where the front end has been replaced they bulk head has not been welded to the inner arches and you can see daylight through it

Project No Money DSC_0161

The day did however have some positive points to it as i found that the floor pan is a good nick and only need one new repair and previous repairs putting right Laughing Laughing

So now i'm undecided, should I take the body off or not???

I agree, if you do find plates stuck wielding the body to the floor pan, they are only going to be tacked in anyway!!

Come on Dave, get her off and show us your underbelly!!

Theres only 2 repair sections that have been welded into the floor plan and they don't need alot to put them right...

And i've found repair that i need to do but would be easier i spose if the body were off........

Recon thats the way to go then, think it mite be best to sort out some of the welding inside it first just to put some strength back in her, before I lift the body to stop her twisting Wink

The past few days have been taken up breaking the donor car
Project No Money DSC_0331

Project No Money DSC_0337

and yeaterday was a non start as the welder wouldn't fuckin work properly so stripped it down to find that the gas was escaping at the switch so fitted it with a complete new lance and done a few test runs, works fine now Twisted Evil

So then had to grind off the welding that I had started and gave up for the day!

Today I was determined to get some work done on her, got a few hours this afternoon so pulled the lump

Project No Money DSC_0346

Project No Money DSC_0347

Then i bit the bullet and took the body off Twisted Evil

Project No Money DSC_0350

Project No Money DSC_0352

The pan looks pretty good Cool Next up is to pull the box and the beam and strip all the paint off the pan
