    Got you👍 Ive already noticed that the panel isn’t a great fit, with it pushed over the existing lugs it’s a good few mm out on the edge! Pic below, it seems like the lug holes are out i.e. if it was rotated ACW it would be a much better fit. I’ve not tried it with the reinforcement and new pipe underneath yet.

    😂 that’s the problem with coming on here! The more threads I look at the more I think should I do a colour change or backdate while I’m at it!!

    I got new lugs with the repair panel but Ive kept the bottom half of the strengthening panel (with the old ones still attached) so I was either welding this back on with the old lugs or making a new bottom half and fitting the new lugs using the cover as a template. Ive not really decided yet, but I was going to trim the panel around the torsion tube back a bit more to tidy it up and make it a neater repair. I kept the top lugs attached to use as a datum. Thoughts?

    Ta 👍 I didnt realise I had posted the pic at the museum in the previous post, I was looking at it because I wasn’t sure if it was the same colour, I think that one is more yellow but yours looks very similar in some pics!

    Yippee... nice to be letting in new metal rather than cutting out the old crap!! Bought some 2" flexi pipe which was probably slightly big, I would have been better off with the next size down but it bends easily and it squashes where needed. Prepared the panel with lots of punched 7.5mm holes, painted in 2 pack epoxy up to the edges then bare metaled and weld through primer. Gave the old heater tube a light dusting with matt black.... no reason why other than it looked nicer going back together!!. Inner sill is tacked on, kidney bowl is a trial fit, the rear panel seems to fit ok but I need to refit the lower re-enforcement panel, all in all I am happy, had a pause just to have a think and make sure ive missed nothing, at this rate 5 or 6 years and I will have it sorted ;0)

    Quick question re inner sill & rear repair panel

    Thanks, looking at the new inner sill panel it looks like there’s a recess for the overlap but the First photo above threw me! Hoping to make a start on this this weekend!

    Quick question re inner sill & rear repair panel

    Not sure what happened with the pic!
  13. Hopefully I will get round to this soon but I just wanted to clear something up before I start welding. Mine is the later large kidney bowl style and I thought the inner sill went on first followed by the rear repair panel which overlapped on top. The Porsche parts list isn’t clear and when I was looking on Classic Carerras it looks like they put the rear panel on first see pics? thoughts?

    You’ve fitted yours inside which makes sense, saves a bit of space! I think I will take the tube I cut off to the motor factors/exhaust place and see if they have anything that fits, they only seem to give the ID in the adverts!

    Something like this, comes 60mm ID and the heater tube is 60mm OD so should slip over.....
