Got the bottom of the A pillar and top of the cill finished off. Put the doors back on so I'm able to align the outer cill correctly. Doors still need aligning properly and out cill still needs a few adjustments before welding in place.

Nice work

Got the outer cill lined up correctly. Put some tacks along the top edge to hold it in place. Folded over the bottom lip around the inner cill ready for welding. Removed both doors and welded along the top which just needs cleaning up.

Got the bottom of the cill welded and tided up. Tided up the weld along the top aswell. Just need to cap off both ends to complete this side. Then on to the next bit to do!

Today my plan was to finish the cill. Got rear end of cill finished off and whilst finishing the front off I ran out of mig wire so decided to start preparing the next part. Got the rear lower wing cut out and found an old wheel arch repair which looks like I was held together with fillet as it just came apart from the original wing panel. Now I will have to clean up the rest of the old repair to see if it's structuly sound before fitting the wing repair panel.

So after a couple of hours work the passanger side cill finished off! All welded, seam sealer then primered and top coat just to seal the primer. Will just need a skim of filler in places to finish off properly. A bit of an improvement from when I started!

Tackled the bad wheel arch repair. Easiest way was to cut it out and start again. Found another bad repair on the inner wheel arch aswell. Wheel arch is clamped and ready to weld back on properly.

Today I moved into my permanent storage space. Not as spacious as a barn but still plenty of room. Built some temporary racking until I decide how I'm going to make it permanent and fit a bench aswell. Just need to sort out ventilation so the container doesn't sweat and some lighting. Also acquired a roll over frame! Just need to make it fit the dolomite shell.

Got the wheel arch repair back on today. Should only need a little skim of filler to tidy up. Has anyone got any pics of the brackets for the roll over jig so I have an idea of where to start. Bolted it to the rear bumper mounts but rear panel started flexing so gave up trying to get it on the spit.

Passanger side boot floor repair in and bottom of side panel replaced. Need to cut out bottom of inner wheel arch and replace now floor is solid. Started to fit rear quarter panel. It's too long at the back and wrong shape to fit rear panel of the car. Going to need a bit of adjustment to make it fit properly.
