Hi chaps I’m going to be cutting a few panels out tommorrow, I want to take of the complete rear quarter panel off or part of it to access the rear bins and heel board repair will I be ok doing that without bracing it up, it’s on a spit jig at the moment
Yes that will be fine. Done that plenty of times. I normally take the whole quarter panel off.

Would you repair the heel board then the floor or vice Versa? 🤔 my thinking is heel board repairs then floor ? I do need to do the boot floor aswell thow 🤨

ADA36002 Is the product number, I’m no expert welder at all! so this is going to be a big job for me on my own but I think it’s the best job, the car is on a spit jig at the moment so I plan to sit the car on a pallet nice and flat and brace the he’ll out of it, I plan to drop some braces down to the floor and bolting them into seat belt mounts as a reference point to make sure it’s in the right place and height, for the heel board position I’ll get a genuine heritage subframe and new mounts and fit it in position bolting it through the boot floor so I know it’s in the right place, I will be removing the boot floor to at some point but I’m thinking my first job is the floor, I’ve a few questions
How high should I build my support frame to avoid difficulty getting the new floor in ?
Where should I take measurements from before I cut the floor out ?
Can I change the floor while it’s on a spit jig ?
Am I doing it in the right order doing the floor first ? Other Panels im changing include rear quarter panels, both door steps, boot floor and the front end
Cheers chaps sorry it’s a long one
