So this morning I got my calipers back from the sand blaster and then rebuild then with all new seals and sliders.
Threw them onto the car so I now have the handbrake at least.
Went back at welding the sill and very pleased with myself to have gotten it all done. Fabbed 2 section and used a pannel from a doner car for the other.
While I'm at it I decided to get some isopol over the welds then to finish it off I know it's under the car and hidden behind the wing pannel bit I'd like to take this opportunity to try hide it all and make it as tidy as possible as I'm going to have to cut in new rear arches and that's exterior pannels so I need to try get it right.
I'll sand it down tomorrow and see how I fair out.
While the wing was off and the welder was out I said I'd tackle these 3 holes sure how hard could it me.
Of course it was a bigger job than expected so went with cutting out the entire area. The top little section has 3 sheets layered and the middle one was also in a bad way so I cut that out too so will patch that one in before getting the final patch pannel in.
As I take out the sealer where the floor pan meets the sill you can. I see that there is some rust it's not corroded badly as I move down the body but what would you do here?
If there's no pitting or bad corrosion I'm thinking of just treating it with rust converter and spraying a coat of epoxy primer down before sealing the gap up?
Will tiger seal work or what should I use?
Little progress I was very happy to see that the floor pan is flat and sits on a flange
So I'll cut out the bad here and replace the flange marked in blue and then I'll be able to add in the floor pan replacement in thinking this "should" be relatively easy.
What I also did today was wired up the battery relocation to the boot and added a kill switch and was able to get the electronics working something I was conscious that I needed to do before the car goes to the mechanic to get the new engine fitted.
Central locking and folding mirrors work two things that usually go on the fritz, didn't go testing the power windows as if they seize when down I'll not have a way to stop the damp as the car sits outside.
