The weather continues to be dry and warm, so more bodywork repairs this week.  The driver’s side rear corner has been worked on, by chopping our rusty sections and welding in new. There is still more to do here, but it is much more solid now.

I am also trying to make some flared wheel arches. This will avoid having the plastic edges on the body. The plastic is always a trap for mud and moisture, and causes corrosion underneath. So if I replace the wheel arch with metal, I can get a good effect with no rust traps.  This is what I have been making today. It is nearly finished, and so I have fitted it for a trial, to see what it will look like when finished.

So far, I like it.  I’ll finish this off tomorrow, and weld it in.
