So it appears half my images didn't upload. So here's some of the completed area's - You may need to rotate your head sorry, my image hosting site is playing up :evil:

This is the rear right inner guard, repairs also extend to the jack point on the sill rail as seen in other images

Bit more progress over labour weekend

The back end has had a fair bit of time spent cutting, shaping and, welding and grinding.

Overall its come together, quite enjoying the challenge. THe small angled piece was quite tricky to fold as it was angled and curved on both edges. Needs a little more shaping to be finished!


Moving onto the roof section which was also curved. needs some more grinding work

Next was the batter box which didnt exist, also the passenger side gutter was missing too. Welded in a fold and avoided the crease line above.

And then.... started having some fun on the passenger rear quarter. Turns out there is a drain hole hidden away which is often cloged with gunk and looks to be the cause of the rust issues around that area.
Also folded up a small dog leg piece for the drivers side rear wheel arch, this is proving not to be easy.

Have started on the B310 top hat mod too

Would hate to think how many hours you have put into this restoration
Guess if a body shop did the work you would be looking at $10,000 by now
Its a credit to you
Hope to see the finished project
Cheers

proooooogressssss, lots!

Rust work is finally finished. Body sanded, rust killed, primed. Engine bay, inside and boot painted. rear of doors and tops of guards painted,
engine back from rebuilders and ready to be assembled and dropped in!

Hopefully over the next week the running gear will be back in and it will be sitting on its feet again.

We also managed to pick up some 13 x 7 hot wires, they are off at polishers now.

Paint is the original datto 120y Red/orange - 'Flamingo red'

Aiming to have the door shuts under bonnet and under boot lid ready for paint, then we will be looking to high fill prime the body
