Took drivers side wing off to see extent of rust.  after looking at it I think i'm going to put a flip front like dave has done in his 

Baghdad To Bolton thread.

found this ropey looking repair where they stuck a bit of metal behind the skin and welded it in then chucked a ton of filler in it!

on removing the old section inside the A post is pretty far gone and been patched so will need to sort that before doing inner wing

The floor had also been patched a couple of times so think i'll just put a new floor pan in it

Last update for a while as I will be spending the rest of the week playing at Enduros with mmy friend KTM EXC then it's back to Uganda for 5 weeks.

 

most of the exterior is back to bare metal.  I'm waiting on my panels turning turning up so I started taking the inside back

Don't know why as it'll all be covered up, but if a jobs worth doing and all that.

 

Anyone know how the best way of removing the sound deadening from the rear quarter panels??

Heat gun and scraper, left mine on rho

cool (or not as the case maybe)  i'll give it ago, it's just annoying me as i will be putting dynamat or something on there and don't want the old stuff to affect the new  but i dont want to start putting dents and shiz in the panel so might end up leaving it on 

 

Looking forward to seeing this complete :) keep up the pics 

cheers dude I hope it will be as good as i think it will, a lot to do.  It just dawned on me this week how much i actually need to do!!!!  lots and lots then more lots!!!  at least i get a break from it every 5 weeks

best not to think of it as a whole mate, just tackle it stage by stage and before you know it you'll just look at it and all of a sudden it'll feel like it's coming together :)

All of it still needs to be sanded as I didn't have my compressor over there.

 

progress has been slow because my toy addiction got the better of me and I bought this beastie and under the influence of beer entered the Scottish Six Day Trial again!
