Sill Finished

Outer sill cut to shape and temporarily fitted into place.

Doors and wings now refitted to check gaps

No sign of distortion, panel gaps are still the same as before, the only thing I noted is that the front of the sill is a couple of mm closer to the bottom edge of the front of the front door, than it is at the rear. This can be rectified by a little manipulation of the metal in this area (hammer). So its all OK to weld now. I shall leave the doors in place during this process, so the gaps can be rechecked as welding proceeds.

So welding complete and I will look at refitting the floor and outrigger next.

By the way, the use of a proper spot welder, with its long arms significantly speeds up the welding process, you can do 2 or 3 spot welds a minute, and there's no need to clean up the welds afterwards, much much quicker than plug welding and grinding down the welds.
