After cutting the rot out I ground off the surface corrosion and zinc primed. A friend made up a repair panel for the near side and a small patch for the off side.


Just checked those on my car, near side has a small pinhole and the off side has a small 5cm hole.

Can I ask what gauge/thickness material the repair panel is?

Mine was repaired with 20g galvanised sheet with stainless studs welded in.

I'm not exactly sure as a friend made it up to match the existing thickness although it looked to be about 1mm thick / 20 swg as Endoman says.

Thanks for the info, did you manage to find suitable studs for the heat shield, they are an odd very coarse thread?

The heat shield studs are a type of CD weld stud. There is a supplier locally https://www.advanced-studwelding.co.uk/ but only sells them by the 1000. He gave me a handful which I passed on to 9m. It's a tricky business doing them in situ so Chris used the same M6 studs as the wing struts. I found those on ebay, M6 self clinching stainless studs.
If you want the correct ones any local good body shop should have them but the equipment to fit them is pretty expensive and it's difficult to get a weld as strong as the factory original. When I did the rear seat delete I fitted RS seat belt reel covers retained by those same weld studs, it took 9m several attempts to get a decent weld.
I would rather have duplicated the original but these will probably outlast the car and no one will see them.

I used M5 studs on mine for the heat shields and M6 for the wing plate studs and as Endoman says they are not seen so more than happy.
