The front crossmember locating block was fitted, welded, and made smooth. Much nicer than original, which had some gaps in each side.
Replacement sections from Rare Spares were checked against the original quarter, which was then trimmed in preperation for work to be done on the rear sills on both sides.
The left side was tackled first, with the inner sill completely removed and replaced, along with new sections for the rear under the beaver panel, and the fronts of the wheel arch. As previously, new parts were supplied by Deano's Auto Restorations. At some point in the past, the wheel well was cut to access the inside of the rear quarter, and knock it out. This was all fixed up and welded back how it should be.
Similar work was done of the right hand side, but this time the spare wheel well was fitted. It had been replaced with just a flat section of material in the past, so removing that and getting it back to factory spec was on the cards. To ensure all this was going to fit nicely, the rear quarters were clamped up to work off.
The inner beaver support and front of the wheel arch also got fresh new metal.
