  1. Ordered the other boot part yester day so waiting on dispatch will look at getting some 1mm sheet metal, but waiting for parts delivery now really will look at finishing off the spit if parts have not arrived by the weekend. 


  2. Got the rest of the rear skin off, looks like there's a bit more work to be done inside the boot first tho as it looks to need both inside and outside lower rear quarter repairs done so I'll get onto ordering tho's up along with some sheet metal, left the boot skin clamped on to see how it's looking.

  3. Right so got the rear outer lower boot skin after a mess up with deliver which resulted in it being sent back to motorsport tools, started the hack off the badly repaired one and already sick of the spot welds only managed a couple hours and got halfway through remove.

  4. So picked the car up today seems to be quite a bit that needs to be done as most of the repairs are poor, more have been uncovered. The splash panels have gone and need replacing so the wings are going to have to be removed, not a real problem as they have been welded on pritty bad. Will replace the rear boot skin that should remove most of the bad welding on the rear engine bay needs quite a bit of attention.

  5. So got a call in work today from the guys shotblasting the Shell asking if I could come take a look at the half they have done before they do the rest :unsure: finished 2 hours early to get down and take a look fearing the worst, turned out not to be to bad,  a mix of bad repairs, rust as expected and what looks to be mot patch work. So told them to carry on as they were and to blast the lot. Should be done tomorrow and ready to go down to get a layer of primer.

  9. so got some stuff done today cut out the battrie tray as it will be relocated to inside, also makes the engine bay look alot cleaner. Had a look at the strenghing kit done the fuse box blank weldings a bit rusty atm, filled the holes for the headlight screws as there was around 8 so can redrill and look tidy. Strenghing kit seems to be a massive jigsaw so having a look online to where parts go and getting some iders, should get a chance to do a bit more tomorrow
