Well its taken some time but we uncovered Hank today as the sun was shining task for the day make a patch for the bulkhead closing pannle and also fit the front part of the inner wing. sorry for the dodgy looking welds i have been trying out gasless wire been struggling a lil but with a lil grind back thay come up ok. This is how todays work turned out.

over the last week i have fitted the inner flinch wing pannle and braced the posts for floor and sill replacment

Post  halfpenny68 on Sat Jul 28, 2012 6:25 pm

well time for the osf rear part of inner wing 1st off i drilled out the door hinge holes and bolted it to the door jam so i could move it around and line it up propper


when lined ip i removed the door a pannle and wing so i could drill and plug weld the pannle in place at the moment the bottom of the pannle is not welded in place as the floor pan is comming out


due to previous owner being over exited with the grinders and cutting tools we are having to use a patch of steel to join the new pannle to the original pannle. not i have only patched the upper section at the moment leaving the lowwer section free to move in and out to line the floor up at a later date then we will weld the lowwer section in place



inner wing in primer hank is looking much better now the inner wing is in place


now this section is complete i have welded in some box section between the A and B posts and to the trans tunnel to help hold hank together when i cut the complete silles, x member and floor pan out

inner sill work

Post  halfpenny68 on Sun Aug 05, 2012 12:32 am

another update

after grinding down the door bin seams the lowwer b post / rear sill section fell out Sad
so today i have tacked the top sill in place so i can line up the inner sill

i have made a plate out of steel and welded it to the rear section of the new inner sill so the sill will go from the front of hank all the way to the back as it shuld as seen in pics i have overlaped the plate alot to add strengh to the seatbelt mounting nut

im hoping to have this tacked into place soon and then i will have to buy some new pannles

front floor
rear floor
x member
x member/ jacking point pannle

once i have these and get them lined up and tacked in i will then gas weld all the pannles in place making the hank solid again here are todays pics
