  1. Lots more new metal this week, funny how this side has rotted differently to the other side, the rot is higher up the b post bit of cutting out of any dodgy bits... lower repair panel welded in, theres a small patch needed under the torsion bar but ive cut back to clean metal and no rot, unlike the other side Small home made panel to make, only had pic to go on for this... left the flange hanging over, i will bend it round once the wing is in place to get the fit spot on👍 kidney bowl welded in place all looks good so outer sill prepped and trial fit with rear wing👍 Pleased with progress now might even get it sorted this year👍👍
  2. Hopefully i was originally aiming for Le Mans classic but i think i was being optimistic!! Looks like it will be delayed now so i am i with a chance!! Yeh will do, cant wait until i know theres no more rust hiding anywhere👍
  3. Nice to find the structural patches in the B post which as well as being over rusty metal are also held on with 1 plug weld every 3.5 inch!! Would have held up well in a crash😯 New panels ready to go and it starting to come back together. Some of the rear floor finished, had a bit of a mare with the welding as it was awkward to get at 3 layers deep but it came up ok in the end! outer sill on👍 Oddly, the torsion bar area isnt as bad as the other side so the area higher up in front of the kidney bowl must have rotted out because of dirt sat on top of the Kidney bowl...
  4. Looks great!! Nice to see one just about there!! 👍
  5. My experience with old cars is that you need a tester who is used to and sympathetic with old cars, i went through a few MOT centres and had some stupid fails including where i went and printed pages out from the MOT website and taped them to the steering wheel explaining that i didnt need seatbelts for a retest!! Place i go now just tells me if anything needs doing, but he knows i will sort it!

  7. That all looks very familiar!! Any updates?
  8. No updates for a while but i have been cracking on!! I thought i had got lucky, the front of the rhs sill was much better than the lhs but as i worked my way back the floor and torsion area still needed repairs! Outer floor is now done and front area. I need to really push on now its only 17 weeks until LMC.... if i can get the welding finished, a coat of paint and the windows in.... the scrap metal bin fills... and new panels ready to go.. assistant wondering what the heck im doing 😂 Targa support panel in... Front floor pan and lower wheel arch... still needs some finishing on the welds Rear floor and torsion bar surround
  9. Are these still available, do you know if they fit a 3.2?
  10. If you after some cheap car fun, what about a mid engined 2 seater thats London ULEV zone compliant... for £1500? Bought mine for a bit of fun while i was sorting the 911 and ive now been using it every day for 1 year, it lives outside, doesnt matter if it gets bumped, ive done 2 trackdays and it hasnt missed a beat!
  11. Looks great!! I took the spoiler off mine but your car your rules! If you do refit the spoiler it looks like the Carrera badge is still in the lower (spoiler fitted position) so you might find that the holes are still there just filled over.
  12. Before and after! 10am to 3pm.... This side is better than the last one but even more annoying!! Again they used all new genuine porsche panels but put them over the old inner sill... if they had done the inner sill as well it could have been a decent job! So inner and outer sill, kidney bowl, targa support, torsion repair and new rear wing needed 😳
  13. First side just about finished other than painting but i will be doing the whole car in one! The underside is epoxied and looks spot on👍 Still need to seam seal.. any ideas how to seam seal the bits you cant reach???? and stone chip. So started looking at the other side... endoscope pics tell the same story so it will all be coming off! (Last 2 pics the new side as a comparison). Reckon i know(ish) what i am doing this time though so shouldnt take so long! Very crusty🙁 oh dear so much wrong in this pic!! Filler, mig wire? Looks like some creative metalwork in here! Looking towards the front of the sill Other side as it should be, still to inject the dynax S50
  14. Ignore me, just seen the post below🤪
