T'other sill is on, and should finish boot floor repairs tomorrow, and will try to start fitting rear valance!!!!
Trying to have welding done be end of week!!
Then just paint it!!!
o and i may have to attach a few bits to make it move, (like wheels and engine)

and new ones should have come today, but didnt,
so ive been trying to get panels fitting best i can till cutting discs arrive!!
boot floor is done and been fitting A panels and Scuttle, but cant weld them on till got cutting discs to repair the flitch under the scuttle. :sad:
Paint might arrive tomorrow or friday (so they say) but no rush because welding aint done!!
Still i can get quite a bit done today ready for the little bits that require cutting discs
Posted 11 August 2005 - 03:17 PM
but cutting discs still havent arrived
Really buging me now, and its delaying everything.

done some welding today, and scuttle is on, A panels are on, and rear valance is on, tomorrow i will remove the lip for a smooth bum!!
will also prep underneath for paint so while its on its side ill spray underneath and when its dry it can go level and stay level!!!
Got some grinding to do on some other bits,
but then i can start preparing and spraying!!

bum is now bumperless and will need a little filler to smooth it out
got a little grinding to do underneath then ill get to painting it!!!!
Then ill let it dry and get on with finishing some grinding on the rest then preping the rest.
So by end of tomorrow the plan is to have the underneath sprayed, and the rest (minimum) preped!!!
Ordered some new bits (pipes), just hope they arrive on time!!! :sad:

Refurbed the rear subframe + radius arms :grin:
Painted bulk head and underneath (reason later)
Ran pipes and battery cable under car
and today put rear and front subframe/engine back on so its moveable (thats the reason)
All i got now is to paint inside and out
Which i can do without getting paint on the running gear
and now the underneath wont get scratched
Rebuilding the engine is a job for another day/week
But now she is looking more like a MINI!!!!
(Its a good feeling to have her on all 4s :cheese: )
