Thanks are also due to Allan Chatterton for donating the rear trim panel for the tailgate, and to Lee Godfrey for his support.
Back to the work. Chassis rail was a bit frilly on the flange, especially where the front outrigger has rusted away, and there is a hole right through the side where the outrigger was fitted
So I put a replacement piece of metal in place, this was "stretched" on the non flange edge to let it follow the upwards curve of the chassis rail.
and front out rigger now temporarly in place.
Above the other flange there's a nasty hole in the transmission tunnel, where it has been heated and hammered into a new shape to clear the 4wd tranmission
Repair part made up, which will be weld into place tomorrow - I may have to repair the flange on the chassis rail on this side too, but I cannot investigate that until the tunnel flange is cut away.
Floor pan now fits nicely, but I won't fit this, or the outrigger until the sill repairs are done
So if time allows I will be cutting the sills off this side tomorrow.
Now the running totals of hours and cost.
Hours spent now 310 - 6 hours today.
Costs now £5923 - £50 spent on powder coating.
