I am restoring my TR6 and currently working on the body. I suspected that at some point the car has been hit from behind, which has proved to be true as the rear valance had very thick body filler. Once stripped back I can see several areas that concern me.
- Passenger side above the bumper mount has a crease that looks very difficult to remove.
- Several dents along the back.
- Drivers side bumper mounts has several rust areas
On a positive note there seems to be no rust at the bottom between the inner and outer panel.
I have attached some photos and was wondering how easy the rear valance is to replace and what the fit is like or should I repair ?
Any advice greatly appreciated
PS I did find a long thread about rear valance, however, it’s hard to follow as a large percentage of the photos are no longer available.
