Subscribed, interesting project, good on ya.

That hole behind the sill is a bit of an eyeopener, will whip the sills off my MR and have a shoofty to be on the safe side...

What a crap couple of days on the car, but its 98% stripped now ready for work to begin

First problem head of rear subframe bolt snapped, so need a new subframe, bolts snapped in chassis legs for fuel filler cover, need to work out how to repair without cutting boot floor lol

Heater matrix pipes crushed as well, everything else came out lovely, couple of rust issues to sort but metal is solid bar sill

Hopefully new engine will turn up tomorrow or Saturday, just power steering pump left to take out and handbrake cables, going to order all brand new brake lines and acd pipe as well from dealer, this is now going to be as close to concours as I can get it

So some pics

























The sill that needs sorting

Some pics up later

The hole in the sill was least of my worries, the whole sill was held together by filler!!!!!!

Its weird how its rotted as well, but I've chopped most out now and hopefully get it repaired when I get some metal, just waiting for phone to charge so I can get pics

Well first purchases have arrived, first off ganador mirrors, need to get a mirror glass if anyone knows where to get them from?



New seats




Then was to tackle the sill, alls I can say is wow, for a low owner and fairly low mileage car, I was shocked that the whole sill was full of filler hiding everything, so I've cleaned it up and done a quick cut of what I need to replace, not a hard repair but making it look neat could be a problem, luckily the skirt hides it, I'd rather have it strong so ill get this sorted as soon as I get some metal

I'd cut the seal back more to get to the rust and tread other wise it's just going to rot from the inside out and waist all your hard work

I've cleaned up all of it in there and applied a zinc primer, can't take any more out due to side skirt clip fitments
