Front inner wing closing panel going in but the repair panel got flattened in the post so making it fit with some pushing and pinning. Going to cut out the old metal once I’ve got is all lined up and marked out.

By the way this is where I started from and the reason it looks a bit rusty. Click image for larger version

Bottom of the A pillar in. Makes a nice change having the top of the car joined to the bottom. Click image for larger version

Default Not a pickup, Yet

Next job on my long list is the nose. Because I’m on a very tight budget I’m repairing rather than buying complete replacement panels. Will let you know how I get on. Click image for larger version

ID:	262407It’s definitely not worth the repair time on my passenger door. The lower hinge didn’t want to budge when I opened it so the door frame cracked. I’m using it for spare parts and I have another door to replace it. Sometimes replace is better than repair, from time to time.
