    did the 16v one in the summer as preventative rust treatment – just a variety of wire brushes on drills seemed to do the job ok.

    Just a thought re the floor panel you’re welding in – did the old one have ridges/swages in to increase stiffness?


    Yes the floor did have ridges etc but I have overlaped the new panel as much as possible onto the original plate and also plan to fix another plate from underneath the chassis, so effectively in the most part its three layers thick.

    Thanks for your comment regarding cleaning the engine bay glad Im not the only one killing my drill with hours of work.

    ah fair enough – I’ve not done swages in large areas of sheet like that yet but had started figuring out how to do it in my head and was itnerested as to whether you’d had a go or not…

    Just thought I’d let you all know i’m still about and the project is still coming on.

    I’ve been a bit distracted recently, new house (so now have my own garage) :-)

    My mates mark 1 needed body work welding and brakes sorting for MOT.

    Another good friend of mine has recently bought a Mark2 running a VR6 with a Super Charger that needs rebuilding as well.

    Might be in need to some parts again soon will post up as and when I need them.

    Most exciting news is a new welding plant!!!! More powerful and it actually works for more than 5 seconds at a time.

    Will try and sort out some photos of progress.
