This is one of when we got her!

Originally we hoped that there wouldnt be to much to do,

However the more we dug the more filler and rust we found

Turns out we need a new lower rear repair panel as the boot floor is only hangin on buy a few inches

also the door inner sill on both sides need sections replacing

There rear boot lid was fairly rotted

So bought a replacement one at bristol mini day for £2

there's a few holes at the ends of the sills in the front wheel arches

and after bieng forced to by Carl i took a flap disc grinder to the roof gutter to find a hole in the roof however the gutters wernt as bad as we thought they could have been!

This ones a 71 Austin 1000 also!

just a little on the other rear corner no holes just rust so shouldnt need replacing

and a bit on the front with holes but not as bad as the rear that you found which is the last pic of the roof!
