The cardboard stuff is used to cover pressed holes,ie left leg for rhd right leg for lhd, there might be a piece on the floor where the clutch pedal would have come through and also the steering rack spigot, ;)

Crikey, that's interesting Allan, no other bits, the floors are long ago patched up.

Engine and box out finally, all suspension off next, then steering rack out.
Possibly tomorrow for these next bits, rollover jig arrives in about 3 weeks so I hope to have made a huge start on the cleaning and painting of all the running gear. Nothing will be going back on dirty or sub-standard.
The clutch actuator rod bearing plate thing that bolts to the chassis leg (dunno it's name) was in a shocking state and the rod was ready to burst through the cracked wall any time. Anyone tell me what it is called?

Parts washer to be filled ready for action this evening.

Definitely won't be putting Maude on the jig without a bit of work first. This was the result of a good hard tug on the near side bumper mount, its rotten where it meets the inner wing but it's exactly as I expected. :lol:

I'm looking at the bulkhead crossmember mountings for the dampers and thinking it would be simple and far stronger to make a fixture to mount the car from this point. Also centralises the loads a lot better so this is the plan at present.

From the above pic of the bumper mount to how it is now. The mass of blobs were in fact a previous brazing job, no doubt many many years ago.

I'll be making quite a lot or repair sections, no fun in buying everything,

Your really getting on well with this! It's looking a fantastic project. You can't beat working on one of these. I'm dying to crack on with mine again.

Aye, the fun is really starting now.
I needed to recreate the flange on the tie plate to be able to properly fix the flitch and inner arch and at the same time provide a seat for a strengthening gusset to support the bumper mounting bar so made this dual purpose 3-D sculpture from 1.5mm thick steel.

This doubles as flange and seat and was made from just 2 pieces. It's designed to sit on top of the tie plate as a doubler yet be flush with the existing flange where I cut the rot out. It just needs the flange reducing a touch and it's ready to go in. Parent panels now need every trace of paint and underseal stripping from the area before I weld in this first of many fixes :D

Will fit here and be a doubler as well as a flange repair

From the other side, remaining flitch to tie needs cleaning up

Sir is most kind.
Check out the rather strange hammered finish on the tie-plate. I've given up trying to work that out. :lol:

There will be another doubler with gusset at the front end of the bumper mounting bar which will replace the flimsy factory bumper mounting bracket. The area here is rotten as well so it's a no-brainier to cut it all out anyway and add more strength for the rotisserie fixing.

your hammered finish is where the nuffield plate was welded to tie plate, this had the body no and other info on it,(not chassis no)
