With some solid doorsteps in place the floorpans could be put in after some minor repairs to the tunnel.

Next in queue is the front. I was careful when the heelboard was replaced to make sure i could use this as a reference for where the floorpan meets the inner wings. With some nice and fresh metal from doorstep to doorstep the rest of the front and A posts could be cut away.

Making sure to prime and paint everything before mounting panels on top

Trial fitting of inner wings.

Wings fits nicely with the outer A posts

After a lot of measurements the panels are welded in place with only a few spot welds for now. Need to make sure the rest of the front fits the inner wings and A posts, but for now the measurements seems to be good

Also changed the shock absorber upper mounting bracket sti with 8 mm metric bolts while the inner wings were out.

Well.. The work started some time ago :) It's just me being slow on updating the progress, it would be a bit much to upload 500 pics in one post :)

Making sure to remove the folds in the panel where the wings meets the front. Never liked them, I don't think they are there intentionally:

After making sure everything was ligning up the front was welded together

Doing it this way is a lot easier with the Heritage panels.

I was trying to look for a fresh roof for this one. No succes though.. 

 

DSC_9186.JPG

 

While trying to see if something showed up, I took a shot at repairing the roof and gutters from sheet metal. This is the result of 2-3 weeks of heating and bending metal.

Still a bit of straightening to do, but the rust has gone and some fresh metal is in

Do you have  any more photos of inner wing install.  Going by the photos, the outer A panel was installed before putting the inner wings on. Just wondering on how you welded in the inner wing without access to to as the outer is already attached.

As you (most likely) know the A-post on cars with external hinges is made of an inner- and outer panel. 

 

The outer panel is attached to the doorframe. The inner panel is attached to the inner wing. 

 

I put the outer A post panel in first, then the inner wing and lastly using the inner A post to connect the inner wing to the outer A post. There is no direct welding between the inner wing and the outer A post panel. 

 

Best pic of the inner wing meeting the outer A post is this:

Connecting the inner wing with the outer A post:
