    FHC rebuild

    i've not got a plate on the drivers door side (i cant access the passenger one yet) there is/was a lot of missing metal so things jave gone astray. How would i get the code from the VIN?

    can anyone correctly i.d the colour code from the inside of the door? i think it is carnelian red from what i've on the internet.

    FHC rebuild

    i started this resto on the most rotten corner. i'm hoping the rest takes half as much time as this (yet to be finished) corner

    FHC rebuild

    i've a little busy elsewhere so only had a few minutes here and there to work. i started with the bit on top as my template, made the bit on the bottom. just need a little fettling and clean up the weld. you can't see the raised edges along the curved parts but they're there. the inner wing is now structurally solid and waiting for hammer and dolly work
  5. Do you mean the fixing point that is under the rear corner behind the seat? If so it is likely to be one of the weak/rot spots. Both of mine have gone and if memory serves me correct there are replacement sections available. As for reinforcement, that would be an owners option. They've lasted this long as standard.

    I still have some fettling and fine sanding to do but they're not far off

    chassis holes

    i think these are more heavy duty than needed for a rad bar, i think the support bar bolts on underneath the chassis legs

    FHC rebuild

    oh nearly forgot, the oil was saturated with fuel. drained nearly a whole wash up bowl of black stinky fluid from it!

    FHC rebuild

    the engine came out tonight, back on it saturday to take off the gearbox & prop shaft. Then get back to welding the front offside area and try to figure out what is going on with the drivers door

    chassis holes

    Can someone tell what these holes in the chassis are for? They look like they have reinforcements inside them. I can't upload the picture even though it's only 2.9mb. The holes are toward the front end, they would in line with the radiator and are in a slightly off square rectangle shape.

    door alignment

    The rear corner. The car is up against the wall on the other side so i can't reference that side. However that door aligns properly. If it's not what i mentioned above what could cause this particular alignment issue?

    door alignment

    It's not very clear but hopefully clear enough
