The first side of the car to receive attention.
After recovering from the shock of what lay beneath the outer sill,
a plan of action was needed: (not neccesarily in order...)
1) Learn to weld
2) Get started before the car collapses
3) Keep on keeping on...
|After cutting out all the rust affected areas the first new pieces of steel were cut from 1.5mm plate used for the inner sill. The white-looking colour is zinc, used to stop the panels from rusting. The above left picture also shows pieces formed and welded to the outer sill.|
|With the inner sill in place the outer sill was reconstructed in small manageable pieces.The lower edge has been left purposely too low and will be trimmed later.|
