    Got the week off this week so took the opportunity to get an extra day in

    Did a bit on saturday, mainly fiddly bits of welding and stuff then ran out of mig wire so with what time I had left decided to give the F16 gearbox a bit of a clean, still needs a bit more cleaning before it's ready for a coat of paint (may steal some of that oven cleaner from the kitchen )



    Today I managed to get the lower part of the rear panel plated and seam welded, just needs grinding and a skim of filler




    next up is the rear valance, hopefully should be able to pick a genuine one up from minisport

    There really isn't much metalwork left to do now (thank fuck) got the scuttle, rear valance, and a couple of small plates to weld in. Then i'm gonna attack it with a grinder & wirebrush attachment ready for paint and seam seal
    hi phil i was just looking at your floor pictures. i am at the same stage as your self i was told that the rear of the main floor where the heal bord meets the floor goes on the inside of the seam? i was told by the body work guy from mini-machine, darlington. i hope your right! it looks a right pain to fit in the inside! lol

    • There's a bend in the panel just before the backseat, from memory this is then spot welded to the rear seat back & base.

              • Good work, the pleasure expressed at getting running made me smile, always satisfying when it first fires up.
