Nice offer, but unfortunately after the rear screen I have four doors, a bootlid and a pair of front wings to weld up! Oh and then a couple of other Fiats and Mercs to do. I have enough work to keep me busy for a lifetime!
Internal strengtheners spotwelded to the new sections.
Other corner repaired. Not as neat as I would like unfortunately some filler will be needed here.
Outer skin neatened up with a repair section trial fitted.
Repair section welds ground off.
All sections coated in zinc rich weld through primer.
Including the underside. Welds have almost disappeared. May get away with just some stonechip on the underside followed by the original colour.
First coat of seam sealer on. This is as far as I got today. Seemed to spend most of my time waiting for paint and seam sealer to dry
Tomorrow I will hopefully get the outer sections on. I have to decide whether to use lap joints or butt weld them in. I would like to butt weld and then grind off to minimise the amount of filler I have to use but, there is no access to the rear of the panel, so clamping is going to be awkward.
