Spent the afternoon grinding the remains of the old bulkhead out of the car and trying to get the replacement one to fit correctly.
Not as easy a job as i thought it would be.

Today i cut the patch off the inner front arch and found another patch.
Took that one off and found the original arch.

Same on the other side, though only a small patch this time.

Trial fitting of the replacement panel.

Still needs a little bit trimming off so they fit together properly.

That looks better already, a solid panel is always a boost to the moral!
And it looks like your getting somewhere at last.
Keep at it Zebedee.

It wouldn't be that bad a job if it hadn't already been "restored" by a VW "specialist".
I've found more botched jobs than i can count on both hands.

Got myself a vented engine lid for free (to go with my free bonnet) thats gonna get sprayed satin black with a pair of white stripes. I'll leave the rest of the car green with the white stripes.

I removed all the baffles from the rusty stock exhaust box as they were loose and then welded it back up. Started it up on my engine stand and when it was revved it blew itself apart at the seams. Did sound mega rorty for a few seconds though.
Think i'll fit my spare standard exhaust and a pair of baffleless taper tips instead.

I like smilies BTW.

Got the bulkhead welded in, ground down and seam sealed today.

Also adjusted the front wings and bonnet so they fit better.

I'm not sure whether i should remove the door to cut out the heater channel or if i should leave it in place.

I think it might get in the way if i try with the door on.
