Lundgren_85 Posted October 11, 2010 Share Posted October 11, 2010 (edited) This weekend I started the Manta restoration project for the second time. The first time I quit because I got a job on a different location so I had too move. But now I´m back in the neighbourhood and continuing the work. The things that I have to do before MOT and paint: Weld left jack point Reweld left front floorboard Weld left sill Weld left rear wheel arch Weld firewall left Reweld right front floorboard, Done Straighten right sill Weld front left frame Demont front wheel mount and suspension Done Demont engine and gearbox, Done Demont rear wheel mount and suspension Demont engine bay, Done Sand blast undercarrage and sills Sand blast wheel wells and enginebay Primecoat undercarrage wheelwells and sills Spraycoat wheelwells and enginebay Sandblast and spray wheelmounts and suspension Sandblast and spray engine and loose parts Done Demont fueltank Replace fuellines Weld boot Primecoat boot Spraycoat interior and boot Weld front fenders and prime Some prestart pictures: When i pulled it out from it´s long time rest. This weekends pics: Rear Front Engine Interior This weekends work done: Before. The floor was welded before I got the jack point in place. Therefor I got a gap of 1.5 inches between the floor and jack point After. Now I formed the sheet metal after the jack point and other reference points in the floor before I welded it. Much better and nicer. Edited April 26, 2011 by Lundgren_85 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
