The boot lid is beyond repair so we will make a new one, the rear guards and doors all need a fair bit of work as do the front guards. Nothing we haven't done before!

The body restoration began at the rear with a new battery box/rear bulkhead section fabricated, rust repair sections welded in to the inner rear quarter panels, new upper and lower boot floors and new strips along the top of the inner quarters for the rear guards to bolt to. Once this structure was back together, the edges of the rear tonneau panel were replaced and the rear tonneau refitted. The new boot lid was fabricated and trial fitted and the rear guards repaired and refitted.

With the rear end taking shape attention then turned to the front. With the front wings removed, previous accident damage and rust were revealed in the bulkhead/firewall area. The side box sections required replacing and a new firewall was made to replace the damaged original. The scuttle had rust issues so it was removed to be repaired.
