    Default Disco 1 rustworm

    Pictures of the back of our Disco 1 project.
    How do you get the rear quarter panels off ?

    Yeah, and we're really struggling with the quarter panels. The top seam is a bugger.

    Actually, the magig tool is one of those oscillating blade saws. Click image for larger version

    Steve, how hard will it be to re-install the quarter panel? I've got a line of rusty rovers that will go through some similar treatment over the next few years.

    Hi Frank.
    In the end, it came off very cleanly. A very thin oscillating blade saw sliced through the top gunk easily.
    I'll do a photograph if you're interested.

    That's an ambitious project. Are you building it as an off-road truck or restoring it for all-around use?

    Makes sense. Nice to be working on a vehicle with a separate chassis at a time like that. Your pictures make me think about tray-backs. It'd be great if somebody in the club would build a D1 tray-back.
