Getting a Mini scuttle to fit. So far, this is the only new panel used on this project.


Made up this bit for the bonnet prop.


Beginning to close in the front of the roof/hood surround.


That's good enough for now


Decided to put a box in the boot floor to stiffen it up a bit, using some "found" metal I had lying around.


This fits in there nicely.

The boot hinges I had to use had worn out springs on one side, so I removed them from both sides and will use them without springs.


It needs something to prop up the lid, so I made up a prop using the bonnet prop for inspiration.

Some more progress>>>

Made this crimping tool.






Crimp - hammer down - crimp - hammer some more - and repeat.




Looking better.


Need to fill in this hole.




Ugly for now, but filled in on both sides.


Prepping front panel for side grilles.


Underside seam sealed, two coats of rust encapsulating epoxy, and some chassis black. Ready to attach to the frame. Hopefully I won't be seeing these ugly welds again for some time.










Still the top bit to do. I will build a fiberglass hood to go in place of the temporary plywood cover. Looks the ticket with the lights wired up.






Introducing Kreacher's little buddy, 'Alf.
