    Not sure about this one !!

    Definitely a lot to go at. On the bright side it’s a desirable car and to find/buy a solid one would of cost you a fair sum. Good luck 👍

    Back panel??

    Hi there, sounds good, how much are you thinking?

    Hi guys, warning, purists look away 😂 so there wasn’t much off inner sill left plus’s it’s possibility not the best of designs anyway. So... 2nm plate along inner part, 2nm plate going from what was left of b post to floor and inner part of inner sill, then more 2mm plate replacing outer most part, finally more 2mm going from b post to inner sill. I’m probably not making much sense but I’d guest it’s stiffer than original, itl take a while to rot and at least there’s something to attach sill too. Apologies if this causes offence to those skilled individuals, it’s the best I could think of, sorry! 😂😂

    Back panel??

    Hi guys, I’m getting boss of most of the welding but this is looming..... any ideas? I thought when I started this you could buy back panels for £100 ish quid but I must be mistaken. Tjm don’t, emailed German supplier, they had one for £450 but I’m a bit of a cheap skate. Any ideas?

    I’v got new outer sill. You’re definitely right, it’s just when I do something different to original I tell my self ‘it’s ok it’s a track car’ trouble is if I keep saying that it could end up being a bit of a scrap heap challenge 😂 ok, I’m gonna get stuck in now 😂

    Thanks Ian, yes there’s some helpful pics, I’m going to wait until my brother is around to give me a hand with the next part or I may end up making work for myself. He welds/fabricates etc for a living, he was was supposed to be sorting the shell but was soooo so slow hence why Iv done it. Iv enjoyed doing it though and with exsprience gained I can hopefully do a good job on this one... my second car from 22 years ago. It looks bad and has usual rot but is actually a better shell than my hatch ...

    As planned I skived away from work for a few hours, cut all rot out, welded jacking point strengthening plate in and did inner most part of inner sill, tbh not sure exactly how it was supposed to go, there wasn’t anything left to try and copy 🤦‍♂️ I think it’l b ok , it looks better than a couple of hours ago😂 will do outer part of inner sill (if that makes sense) one eve

    Hi Ian, yes indeed, that was what I wanted to attack today, I think I was being a bit optimistic 😂

    Been all afternoon doing stuff I didn’t know needed doing..... thought I’d finished inner wings, removing the remaining underseal to paint and found little hole that , er, turned into big hole. Quick patch then off with offside sill, I knew rear inner sill was really bad but turns out fair bit more, looked ok ish on inside, few patchs made and welded in. Will have a look at the nasty stuff Wednesday, don’t want to play anymore 😂😂
