So here are the pictures I promised. Wiped the car down tonight ready for a possible painter to come and have a look at it tomorrow.

Doors all repaired

Firewall filled where we welded up all the unnecessary holes. Can see the lower bulkhead all stone chipped and over painted

Should keep it nice and protected

Wheel wells got the same treatment



Nice new inner and outer sill

Interior nice and tidy




New inner and outer sill on this side too, both sides sealed inside with dynax S-50

Rear wheel wells also stone chipped and over painted

And boot floor



Inside the boot painted, all unseen as I made a full boot liner




The whole floor underside was also done






Annoying seems my camera has dust on the lens

Nice amount of progress made this weekend. Stripped the door of handles and locks ready for paint. Found out my new mirrors and drilled the door for the new mounting plinths. Welded up all the old holes in the door skin, seems the drivers door has had 4 different style mirrors on it at some point! Cleaned all the welds up and test fitted new mirrors

Drilled my new wing for the bonnet catch on that side after a long time spent lining everything up and getting the panel gap right. All that is left is to drill some small holes for the arches and my new grille and it can go off for paint. Sorry there are no pictures but wanted to get as much as I could done before my paint guy comes and sees it tonight.

In the last few nights I have drilled all the holes for my arches and new grille (very stressful lining things up and getting it fitting right). Also yesterday I almost finished cleaning all the paint off my front subframe ready for some primer and painting in satin black which will hopefully match my rear one that was powdercoated. The hunt for a painter continues!

Yer lol almost as stressful as chopping up my brand new wing so that I can turn with my new 12x6s on lol. Definitely made sure I have done them all before paint, I think if I tried to do them after and the drill slipped I would never forgive myself!

Your doing a great job and doing it properly, by lining every thing up and drilling your holes will ensure that it will go together a lot quicker.
Well done mate.
