Lockdown Repair work


Recommended Posts

Hope you are all doing ok and keeping safe in these weird times! 
So as I’m self employed I’m currently doing hee haw work and still waiting on a help from the Gov 🙄 

Anyhoo, I thought I might as well try my hand at repairing the 1987 110. The worst bits are the dreaded footwells and some bulkhead bits too. 

i know others could have done a better job but I’m kinda chuffed how the offside went. I’m currently onto the near side. Few pics for you to get your fix 😎

That looks tidy. Its a ****ty job to do but good to have it done!

I have a new bulkhead for mine because I cant bring myself to do the repairs you have done! Now I cant motivate myself to do the bulkhead swap because I may as well do a chassis at the same time. Then I think I know what will actually happen and the 110 will get stripped to do a panel by panel re-spray and rebuild!

Aye it’s a job alright Reb78 !! I’m actually enjoying it. Learning lots and now not so scared of things like this than I used to be 😱 

if your chassis is in good nick maybe get on with the Bulkhead swap? But I’d say make a start and the rest will follow 😊👍

Looks good - nice job !

We have 2 chassis waiting here for the travel bans to be lifted so we can get them galvanized and start a rebuild...

That’s a fine job you have done there. Scary to see the corrosion behind those panels but l guess the vehicle is 33 years old.

How many cars last 33 years with daily use and are still running?

It’s going to be good for another thirty years when you have finished.

Thanks lightning, wasn’t able to see just how bad it was until I got the wing off. Offside wing I took off with the galvi inner wing still attached, but the nearside I separated them which was easier. I hope it does last a while after all this 😊👍

Sitting on the deck in 22 ish degree sunshine enjoying a cold one after what was a longgg day on the rebuild. (I know not as big as some are doing) 

It’s almost there and I reckon tomorrow it’ll be test drive time. Fingers crossed 😎☀️🍺👍

hope you’re all doing ok
