bit more done today






got the door step and sill tacked in place ready for seam welding and cut the rot out and plated it and painted with zinc weld through primed before welding. hopefully it will help stop any further rust.
scuttle trial fitted will be welded tomorrow and cut the a post and door step and outer sill off on offside. and offside floor trimmed back ready for new floor pan.

yer cut the rot out is the only way to do it properely as just cleaning it up it'll just rot again in the same place.

only got that amount of skill from years of doing my own and other people's cars. saying that it's a case of having too the price garages charge.
nothing about brave as it's not my car it's my mates lad's who is only 17 and has a 1275 mini after passing his test first time
and i got the lovely job of rebuilding it back to better than when it was new.
i've had a clubman when i was 18 so a few years back loved it and i've now had 4 mini's and still got 2 off them both waiting for me to sort them out but hope to have one of them done ready for MINI 50 celebration's this year.
