Hello all, short update of the last days' progress:
I went further on the floor repairs. Now it looks like a patchwork... Hopefully after grinding it further down and then with a flap disc it will look flush, but I'm pretty happy with how it comes out.
This afternoon I started on the battery box, and decided to change the whole bottom of it, as otherwise I will need to do several repairs to it. First thing was to think how to recreate the rib et its bottom.
So I changed profession and took a piece of wood which I drilled to recreate the negative form of the rib.
On the second attempt I was satisfied with the result and decided to go on. I only cut a big plate out of an old painted panel, and started to strip the paint. Tomorrow's task will be to create the rib, dirll the holes and do the folds. And then weld it to the remains of the box.
But... I forgot to take pictures...
And when I get one hour I will paint the calipers so that they can be stored until using them.
And I think I can look for a new upper arm, as the knuckle housing is worn. If I remember well the nylon cup was broken, and the knucke has then worn the arm...
