Good luck John, i thought the car was gold... not orange rust colour :lol: Those patio doors are gonna take a beating if all that rust is going to be removed outside!

Mancona it, Manconas take 6" less welding on the chassis. ;) Although that front panel looks ok.

I like the mole grip bonnet pull, glad your binning the boat anchor too.

Steel, i use dexion shelf panels for body gauge, cheap, strong, painted. For chassis stuff... get friendly with a local fab shop and pull stuff from the weigh in skip, it's normally in smaller pieces and you can get loads of gauges.
