As promised, Mini Mondays have commenced! Although come to think of it, it'll probably be at least Tuesday by the time you read this.
So this is how the project is progressing. I took some time off to get my head together with other things about a month back, also to decide whether to replace or rebuild the front left section. I chose rebuild!
The rest is pretty self explanatory!
I was surprised at how much metal had corroded here...
First repair section in place.
Second panel cut and put in place too.
This was quite a bit later, after adding red-oxide paint in and around the ready to repair section and in the previously welded floor area. Next I fitted the inner and outer A-panels...
...along with the door! First time it's looked vaguely car like in a long while! : )
To say it was the first time fitting, it was a pretty good fit! Even in the door aperture!
With the extra panels in place, the inside looks quite tidy too I think.
Next panel to go in was a nightmare to fit . . . and it still doesn't fit!
Did I say the previous panel was a nightmare? Ha! Nothing compared to this section!
I'd love to hear if anybody else is doing a project as ambitious as this on a shoestring budget! If you're reading this and know anyone, put a link in the comments and get your project heard about!
