This afternoon spent on the chassis rail repair

Started with this, plus a bit underneath the smaller hole to the right of the picture.

Cut out and patches welded in

Dressed and splattered with the end of my last can of weld through primer. Waiting on some more weld through and epoxy to arrive in the post.

On a side note, has anyone remade this section, if so how did you do it? Looks fun!

If you buy an original style rear wheel arch section you will see it extends inwards and will give a better idea of how it all goes together.

There’s some decent pics of how that inner arch goes together in my procrastination thread.

Good effort, keep at it. I would stop cutting though and just fix one area before cutting the next out. When you cut the b and c pillars you will need to brace internally to stop them flexing outwards.

Thanks Adie!

Started on the cupboards today. Yet to decide on what finish we're going to settle on but started taking off the vinyl wrap. Very therapeutic with a bit of sunshine to boot!Image
