I decided to extend the steel tubing forward and take it right to the door “A” pillar. This will provide more strength to the door opening and give a firm edge to weld the floor to. Fritz gave me the idea to do this on his LWB rebuild.
It then became clear that it would be a good idea to get the front wheel arch in place next. Then there will be a firm edge to weld the floor and inner wing repair parts to.
So I made some repair sections with the new profile, similar to the rear wheel arch. These will make up the desired shape of the wheel arch.
