  1. Hi, thanks for that, that actually sounds promising, it’s 100 miles from me but price is good , might be worth a drive ....
  2. Only kidding, if it was a 10k coupe I might of got a bit emotional. Anyway, with the roof lining out it seams the roof is totally , er, no polite word. Is there a roof of a Similar profile? The sunroof shaped hole iv cut out seems relatively flat! This is a track day toy, will never be sold, not a show car etc but does need to look presentable (from a few feet!) 😂
  3. Yep, easier job when not going back in. Roof lining didn’t survive. I feel bad 😂
  4. Hi guys, pretty much got through underside of car but as usual, rusty roof. What’s the quickest way to remove roof lining? More than likely not refitting as having a roll cage and would like to locate to roof to help shell stiffness. Having said that it’s a good one and don’t really feel like ruining it. Thanks for any help 👍
  5. Er, how can that be possible, I’m gonna have to go back and check it out again 😂 that fabrication is unbelievable
  6. Hi, it’l need a bit of work, few dings here and there, I guess most will by now though. I’v still got plenty ahead of me so will see if anything comes up over next few months, if not il repair one iv got. Shame the other one on eBay won’t allow courier, it looks spot on and right money.
  7. Nope, I asked but collection in person ☹️
  8. Hi Ian, iv tried , collection only in person 👍
  9. Hi guys good near side wing wanted. Must be good as iv got two average ones anyway. Happy to pay £100 plus delivery. There’s been a good one on eBay for £100 but collection only so hoping £100 would get one. Thanks 👍
  10. Definitely a lot to go at. On the bright side it’s a desirable car and to find/buy a solid one would of cost you a fair sum. Good luck 👍
  11. Hi there, sounds good, how much are you thinking?
  12. Hi guys, warning, purists look away 😂 so there wasn’t much off inner sill left plus’s it’s possibility not the best of designs anyway. So... 2nm plate along inner part, 2nm plate going from what was left of b post to floor and inner part of inner sill, then more 2mm plate replacing outer most part, finally more 2mm going from b post to inner sill. I’m probably not making much sense but I’d guest it’s stiffer than original, itl take a while to rot and at least there’s something to attach sill too. Apologies if this causes offence to those skilled individuals, it’s the best I could think of, sorry! 😂😂
  13. Thanks, looks like that will be what will happen, iv still got a fair bit in front of me anyhow so something may crop up.
  14. Hi thanks for reply, it’s for hatch, can coupe be encouraged to fit?
  15. Hi guys, I’m getting boss of most of the welding but this is looming..... any ideas? I thought when I started this you could buy back panels for £100 ish quid but I must be mistaken. Tjm don’t, emailed German supplier, they had one for £450 but I’m a bit of a cheap skate. Any ideas?

  17. Is there no end to your resolve! How do you keep going! I was going to do a bit on mine but had to sort the kids out tonight, now iv seen what’s in front of you I feel quite lucky, I’m off out now to do an hour or two....
  18. Nooo don’t do it!!! Hang on, where did you find that picture of my hatch from? 😂
  19. I’v got new outer sill. You’re definitely right, it’s just when I do something different to original I tell my self ‘it’s ok it’s a track car’ trouble is if I keep saying that it could end up being a bit of a scrap heap challenge 😂 ok, I’m gonna get stuck in now 😂
  20. Thanks Ian, yes there’s some helpful pics, I’m going to wait until my brother is around to give me a hand with the next part or I may end up making work for myself. He welds/fabricates etc for a living, he was was supposed to be sorting the shell but was soooo so slow hence why Iv done it. Iv enjoyed doing it though and with exsprience gained I can hopefully do a good job on this one... my second car from 22 years ago. It looks bad and has usual rot but is actually a better shell than my hatch ...
  21. Hi Ian, will do, do you know roughly what page it’s on?
  22. As planned I skived away from work for a few hours, cut all rot out, welded jacking point strengthening plate in and did inner most part of inner sill, tbh not sure exactly how it was supposed to go, there wasn’t anything left to try and copy 🤦‍♂️ I think it’l b ok , it looks better than a couple of hours ago😂 will do outer part of inner sill (if that makes sense) one eve
  23. Hi Ian, yes indeed, that was what I wanted to attack today, I think I was being a bit optimistic 😂
  24. Been all afternoon doing stuff I didn’t know needed doing..... thought I’d finished inner wings, removing the remaining underseal to paint and found little hole that , er, turned into big hole. Quick patch then off with offside sill, I knew rear inner sill was really bad but turns out fair bit more, looked ok ish on inside, few patchs made and welded in. Will have a look at the nasty stuff Wednesday, don’t want to play anymore 😂😂
  25. There’s no words... awesome come close
