ID:	2511 Stripped all the paint off the wheel arches as delivered - unprimed beneath a very thin coat of powder. A disaster waiting to happen.

    Nice progress! Which supplier did you get all the patch panels from?

    Company back in the UK called YRM-metal solutions www.yrm-metal-solutions.co.uk

    They shipped the cross member, the sills, sets of mudflap hardware, and end closers....for $60.00

    And some bits have been made from scratch. There's a horrible piece around the alpines I had to form in a pressbrake.

    Default New update.

    After a delay due to serious AP examination prep, job restarts on right side...Ended up much worse than we expected, but not as bad as the left.
    Battle on to be ready for the club picnic !

    Your pictures make me worried about what I'm going to find on mine when I dive into it. I'll be at the picnic and I'd love to check it out in person if you get it back together in time. Keep up the good work.

    The plan is to have it ready for the picnic, If I'm heading out I'll leave the rear trim out so you can check it out.

    Default Welidng

    Got all my welders running again, so we TIG welded some of the stuff yesterday. I love TIG, but it was a BITCH on rusty steel.

    Default Still more problems

    Now we find both inner wings are held together with underseal, so they're coming off tomorrow :-( Probably a new battery box as well. Fun, for some values of fun.

    Default First new inner wing fitted.

    Decided to use Q rivets to resecure the new panels - the shear strength is at least comparable to the spot welds on before.
    This is what it looks like after removal

    Jon prepped and painted the galvannealed parts with POR15 before assembly.
