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.
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.
