Mark Posted September 11, 2006 Share Posted September 11, 2006 This week I am mostly attempting to replace some kind of structural integrity to the offside inner wing on the disco. My discovery seems to have had the 'rust pack' specce'd as when I got the car (about october 2005) there were several corrosion related jobs that needed attending - the Sills and the Rear floor were done before it's first trip out (wales feb 06) and I feel I now should do the inner wing. Only managed to spend a couple of hours on it today, but here are a few photos to show the extent of the problems: Front wing came off pretty easily - the plastic inner just fell out : With the battery and gubbins in place, it is not looking great, but there really shouldn't be daylight through there: The true horror can be seen from underneath: and and with the battery removed, you can see that a lot of it was being held together by gaffer tape!: I have aquired a genuine parts repair panel which means I can basically cut everything from the footwell all the way to the back of the light box out in its entirety. I will need to put some patches on the light box, as it has no real bottom to it, but that is to be expected. I have started to release the spotwelds that hold the wing section to the other bits of car. Will update with progress tomorrow....
