    Wiped off the paint and just etch primered it. I’m blowing less holes too now, maybe getting my eye in?

    Continuing with the sill/floor repair, got a little more welded towards the front then tried to offer up my m-machine inner arch repair. Not sure what was going on as it was nowhere near, would probably have haven better making it myself. However it’s what I had so I straightened it out, drew on a few lines and reshaped it until it fit. Also placed a swage line down the centre to try and make it look like it was meant to be. Not perfect but not too bad. Once it’s fully welded I’ll use a hammer and dolly to dress it’s shape a little.

    Thing to remember about most of the repair panels for the mini, is there just quick MOT fixes.
    ie. just slapped on over the original panel and not mean't to be done properly. Which is why most of them don't fit when the original areas cut out.
