I'm watching. I also see you have a Clark 105en welder, I acquired one (used) a couple of years ago still going strong. You are getting some good results with it.

Ok sorry for the delay:D plenty more progress. The harnesses are going to mount to the top of the rear parcel shelf. So we needed to fit the harness mounting plates

Image

Image

The parcel shelf was a little floppy in the middle so we fixed that.

Image

Also got the two centre mounts for the harnesses done.

Image

Image

Did get the side two in aswel but forgot to take a picture of them. Got 90% of the underside etch primed.

Image

Image

Also got the o/s/r wide arch fitting pretty well after an entire day of fettling. Pain in the arse.

Image

More tomorrow:) or maybe the day after :lol:

Also got a second coat of etch primer on the underside and rear arches.

And got the car floor and boot floor seam sealed ready for paint.

Hopefully I'll get some paint on the boot floor tomorrow:)

Rich, also, once you've answered Jonners' question! :lol:

What paint stripper are you using? Is it Starchem?

Great work by the way!
