Drivers side similar condition heater channels will repair closing panel needs a couple of small repairs.

Removed door i prefer to use my welder to remove the seized hinge screws to avoid disturbing hinge plate position with impact drivers as force.

Lower screw drilled into head and welding built up until mole grips can be used to remove.

Same at top but nuts used as easier to access outer screws

The heat almost instantly breaks rust bond and the screws are removed with a socket while glowing!

Obviously this ruins the screws but whole process took about 20 minutes

Hot screws 😁

So basically I'm very tight and if i can make something heath Robinson style i will !
Flywheel oilseal gave out and i did remove the nut with a breaker bar and angle iron combination but when it came to tourqeing back up i liked the idea of a torque multiplication tool but these are £100
So made one
Had a knackered starter knocking about stripped the main shaft down


Reversed the cog and welded it to end of shaft
Then welded bar to old socket


Had this socket welded to an old elora ratchet handle to remove hub nuts with a ten foot bar!
Measured on flywheel and tacked together

I had more pictures but phone died and took most of my pics with it!
Anyway after a proper full power welding session it works perfectly multiples by 9 so i can accurately forge nut with my 1/2 inch torque wrench and cost nothing 😎

Havenít had chance to work on car for 4 months,and What with the demise of my I phone and photobucket fiasco Iíve lost quite a few pictures
But done a little bit more
At first inspection drivers side rear body mounts looked pretty good never plated up.

But after a few taps with my trusty toffee hammer

Itís all a little rotten! Now I had intended to just plate it up but that much corrosion had to be done a little better than just covering up.
I have been buying beetle panels at shows when I see them cheap just in case...

Trial fitted whole panel with Cleco fasteners then Un spotted the rear body mount so I could repair the boot floor and return lip first, then fix body mount reinforcement plate and body mount.
More rot


Had a right side outer rear cross member section in my little stash and it was a good pressing so used this to set up panels.
