I did not think that you had done too bad as I see that you have lowered it! ;-)

I've got a few big piles of parts, but still no car





but its finally starting to get some new metal





Sill closing panel was a bit squashed, so made a new bit and welded it in.





Using the whole lower quarter repair panel to remove as much rot as possible.



but it takes a fair bit of fettling.





Getting in to the arch.





Tacking it all in to place.




Starting to look like a quarter panel

Axle off, I thought it would put up a fight, but it wasnít too bad.




Time to repair the inner edge of the wheel housing.












Finally got a wheel well
