    So, €250 lighter....a guy nearby who breaks these cars had an ad on fbook for this:

    Straight and rust free, no signs of any repairs.

    Test fitted the doors after measuring the openings which were slightly out. The passenger door is 100%, a combination of worn hinge and possible movement on the driver's side means it bangs off the striker but can be lifted closed.
    Worth noting that there is still a large hole in the driver's footwell and outrigger not fitted.
    When closed the roof is slightly proud of the door (I'll have to recheck that it's the roof that's proud )

    Conclusion: the shell needs to be fixed down straight and true so that my repairs from here on don't leave it twisted

    After previous financial outlay, the chassis frame with have to wait a week or two, ho-hum!

    Great stuff.
    You are doing a proper job there.

    It's better to let things stew for a while and be sure, than tear on and regret at leisure.
    It supposed to be fun but the hard bits give a lot more satisfaction when you've cracked it.

    Thats my excuse anyway.

    Remember this is a project. And possible investment.
    Well done on finding a leg though.
    Now with measurements would want to drop check the shell.

    Very basic braces for door openings, offside door closes better with this one fitted...
