    Cheer bud, Dal has worked wonders on this so far. No doubt i made the right decision and didn't take it to someone else.

    Onto september 2018

    Slam panel was rotten surprisingly


    So that came out and got replaced with new sheet metal. The other front inner panel wasalso replaced with a new part and the pass. side A piller got the same treatment as the drivers did the month before













    Then some prep work for the next step

    Must be satisfying to see all the shiny new metal in place of the rust

    Not really much of an update, no pics anyways.

    Having started taking back all the parts that I took home during Dals workshop move everything is now in place to carry on.

    The front end can now be sorted - tubed and mocked up. The rear axle can have the pcd re-drilled to a decent one that's awesome for future wheel choice.

    Decided to go with an s13 power steering set up as that is easily available and will also use s13 driveshafts/rack.

    The rest will be sorted as and when i guess!!!

    Just a little but I wasn't blind going in to this. Just wasn't expecting the extent of structural and bodywork required prior to getting ti this point.
