Dear ErikMarc, i still owed you these pictures.
I had my sill out yesterday and took this pic... it is related to post #112 the reinforcement of the inner sill.
and another picture showing a ridge that is originally in the right passenger floor. As I noticed you have a bead roller, you might still be able to put it in?
another suggstion is the third & forth picture. As the rear of the sills are rust prone, it would a good thing to have acces for cavity wax injection. the Original sills had an opening on the inner /underside for this near the rear, but as it is such a layered constrruction, you can't get into all the layers. I made some holes in the triangle piece that allows cavity wax to be injected from under the rear seat. See pic with red pencil.
Would that be Pound sterling £ or Dollars $?YOU ARE SURELY GOING TO HAVE 200K IN LABOR ON THIS UNIT

Please note one more Stupid - I also feel so.Would that be Pound sterling £ or Dollars $?
Yep loads of good steel - its just has lots of holes in it....

I think I must be Stupid!
Yes, i also think that this primer used on W&N body parts is not to durable, i don't think it last too long, because on my body parts also have some splashes (not mounted).Marc, a question and a request for advice: I see that you are welding the new panels straight in, keeping the paint as it came with.
Are you going to acid dip it once its done ( i know you have these facilities in the uk), or is it good enough for you, with a liberal coat of wax of some sort?
I ask because i feel im taking it to theoretical:
The panels i have are from W&N and that coating is quite marginal. Scratches easily and even some rust spots on it.
So i take a lot of effort to clean them, etch them and put a thick coat of epoxy on them. After welding i drown it in epoxy again and seal with a clearcoat. No area is left as bare metal and all welds are cleaned from both sides. (Chemical dipping is beyond my scope and budget.)
Am i taking it too far?
