The weather is forecast to be good this week, and so it is time to get on with the body repairs. First area to be replaced is in the rear panel. This was dented and rusty, so a large section was cut out and a new one was made from 2mm steel.
Then this was welded, and then smoothed off and painted.
Behind this panel was an extension of the rear crossmember, that is used to support the bumper halves. I am not going to be using the standard bumpers, and so I cut this short, as it won’t be needed. This will make it possible to paint the rear of the repair panel.
There’s lot’s more to do, but it’s a start for 2019.
