Image
lovely layer of pod along here
Image
Image
its well rotten will need cutting out and a piece letting in , but prob cut the lot of and source a s/h defo panal etc
Image
Image
Image
Image
pics speak for them selves
so we make a reverse gullwing
Image
Image
this is just another reason i hate those oversill/side panels and will never fit them plus they cause loads more work to repair correctly
Image
Image
they then just filled the seam with pod :roll:

Hi Mike,
If your doing your usual and making a batch of the wing bottoms, put me on the list for some if you'd be so kind.
Cheers,
Tim.

I've often seen you make up a batch of repair panels such as sill closures and sill kits, and pass some on to others making the same repair.
If you are using the good archs as in the VW shape panel with inner arch, and making up a panel to repair the area emmediately above and in front of the arch
with the return lip to meet the arch, I would be very interested.
I don't like the look of the tall panels that are available that just reproduce the shape of the seam.
In an ideal world, something that went from the sliding door with the lowest swage included, and above the arch by an inch or two would be brilliant,and fill a hole in whats allready available. I can see that it would be rather difficult to make in one piece as it has a lip and a curve.
If theres rust in the seam, then there is more than likely damage to the upper lip aswell. I've done one side and repaired the top lip in places, but I'm not happy with it, and can see me redoing it in the future.

Does that make any sense?

Hi,

My front panel isn't too bad and only needs the bottom 2" repair panel- have you got any tips on removing the old layer thats welded to the deformation panel? It's really awkward to get at and remove the old inner lip.

Thanks
