Looks like i might have to start looking out for a more solid floorpan.
Seems i need floorpan halves, napoleon hat section, framehead and some of the underside of the spine.

Theres a hole the size of your fist just infront of the pedal support and the master cylinder bolt near the spine has sunk into the napoleon hat.

Drivers door post is a little soft too.

I'm in two minds now whether to bite the bullet as it were and continue cutting and welding or just look for a more solid shell and chassis and start from scratch.

Must admit i have seen worse, though they are now being used to fill ditches.

This great 5 bargain a mate picked up was ever so slightly rotten.
I did end up with a nice solid rear wing off it though.


My old 1303 was rotten as a pear too.


Think i'll stick with it and get it welded up. Better the devil you know and all that.

Not got around to doing anything photo worthy lately.

A bit of underseal scraping, wirebrushing and red leading. Boring really.

Managed to remove the pedals and the master cylinder bolt that had sunken into the napoleon hat section and found a hole or two.

Naps hat is a little rotten.

The majority of the frame head is solid with just a couple of 50p sized holes.
It'll definately need a bottom plate and napoleon hat section though.

Zebedee, it'll look a million times better once you cut out the rot.
Plenty of people on here have done this area recently , me included.
Glad to see your sticking with it!!
