42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-29 20:12:53Okay so all these 'I had a mini when I was your age' folk keep telling me I'm wasting my time doing the door bottoms because they don't do anything.. What do you think? Before and after of the bottom passages door:
(Welding and skin will be finished tomorrow)
42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-24 16:33:16So finished up the door bottom, clagged the inside with waxoyl and got a tac on the new skin. Next I just have to offer the door on before welding properly and door no.1 is finished! Productive day.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-23 16:03:40Okay so I'm on with the doors now. Went and spent obscene amounts on heritage panels but I'm hoping they pay off with their fit. Made a start on one of the bottoms but I got fed up with the welder it has a bit of a dicky feed when it chooses to
42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-16 20:38:02Ok so it's back down on wheels... Again. May not look much different but it was a lot of work. Needed doing so back onto cosmetics. Doors and door bottoms next and the bodywork bar the usual touch ups are done!
Then things get expensive :/
42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-09 18:20:13This is it for tonight. Welding with no mask is taking its toll. Finish the top up tomorrow and that's that. Crazy to think this time last year the rear quarter was just being bought.. Slow progress!

42 updates 22 followers 6 mods2012-12-09 16:45:56Been busy so haven't had much time but here's the bulkhead fully cleaned up!
Also long story but had to dig the floor repair back up because the riv nuts decided to drop into the sill.. Almost done though and I want the doors done by Xmas. That should leave the car orange-less!
Just got my stickers too! Saving one for this. Others going on the golf!

Door lines are now good just waiting for the welder back from a friend to reskin and put some new bottoms on em so in the mean time I've just under sealed and tidied up. Once they're done it's just touch up work till I've save up for the kit of all kits
