Very useful advice on this post, - but I need a bit more!

I'm doing the sills and floor, using the full length heritage floor panels, but I also need to replace the toeboard! I've got the car braced and up on a rollerjig, but typically it bolts to the existing toeboard as well as the tower bolt holes on the bulkhead,

any ideas of how to approach this? Floors/sills first then take the jig off to do toeboard using subframe to position it? or is there a better way? Cheers!

 

 

-oops, forgot I've got to fit new doorsteps too!

I would get the door steps in first.

 

That will give you more strength to start with, then do the floors next. Keep thinking strength here even with the bracing.

 

Then once the floors are in, support the front of the car,  take off the spit support arms and replace the toeboard. The toeboard should only really fit one way.

Sorry, me again!!

I’ve finally managed to get a sill off this evening. It doesn’t look horrendous, so will only be replacing parts of the inner sill and floor at the front.

How do you go about removing the jacking point with the door step in place and rear slinging bracket? They look like they have some hidden spot welds.

Thanks!

I cut them down until you can get to the flanges or whats left of them. then pop the spot welds.
