Wow excellent work there, if you want to get rid of some of that four door trim and glass, i,m after a black interior for mine and could do with some spares.. ;)

Edit, just seen your ad in the for sale section, ill take them if we can sort a price between us..

has to be the best modification ive seen yet! hats of to you sir!

Funny me and Fergal were talking about this t Billing last year, he thought it would be a fairly easy question. Thought it would have been done at thiss side of the water first though! Whole new meaning of using a Cavalier donor!

I'll be keeping an eye on this, looking forward to seeing the finished result.

WOW you've got some balls to do that, did you not need to brace the car before cutting all that out.

Much o respect :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

I did think that but as i didnt cut all the way through the C pillar the roof should have held it all together i hope lol

Bit of an update, havn't had much time to spend on the car of late due to other commitments but i have managed to do a bit

Quater and B/C pillars are now fully welded in and i am quite happy with the finish

Next managed to salavage the sill inforcer from the 4 door as it is longer than a 2 door so i could cut the back end off and reuse as the back end was grotty, also cut out back end of inner sill and replaced


Next job was to try and sort out the bottom of B pillar door jam mess


rot cut out


New pillar made



Next managed to get sill on



I'm quite happy with the way things are looking just wish they weren't taking so long lol

Next job is to do the same on the other side
