Well decided to have a prod round the bubbles at the weekend corner of the windscreens no real surprise will get the wings off the next couple of weeks to see what lurks underneath. the rear quarter has had a bodge and fill but actually was not quite as bad as I expexted as in wasn`t as far up the rear quarter as I had expected (like Clinchy`s) so looks like cut the bit on the sill and take a cut across the quarter.

could be a few nights in the mancave this winter.

Made a bit of progress today stripping the front end and had a good look round,I suspect it has had both front wings replaced at some point both have certainly been off previously, the oil cooler and front aluminium bumper have also been replaced have tonbridge opc stickers still attached so looks as though it has maybe had a front end tap at some point. The tub is spot on with no sign of damage so all pretty good really some overspray here and there from some of the countless bits of paint it has had.

Made a start on removing the wing/fender all pretty straightforward other than a couple of retaining bolts behind the AC plumbing which I think I can probably get, or should I pull the ac drier etc ?

Gary if the front wings have never been off the car there will be a small spot weld in the area of the windscreen scuttle panel and the top of the wing under that little rubber strip and the wing will not come off with this intact
You can see it to the right of the bolt
I just used a sharp chisel and tapped it off

Thanks for that Clinchy I was aware of these welds and none there, pretty sure both wings have been replaced at sometime a heap of waxoil has been sprayed along the inner edges and wing tape is keeking under the seam.

good news is the wings are in perfect condition

Good news on the wings being mint!! Think there about £600 each new.

This is why my bubble was there as you can see in the metal the tin worm has set in and this was repaired by a opc bodyshop around 5 yrs ago!! With a lifetime guarantee.....Mmmmmm

If you look close you can see where they have put weld in to try and fill the holes to fill I'm up!!

Nice....

Pretty pish attempt at a repair welding up rusty holes , surgery is the only solution I have the same issue on one side, what you doing with your paint blending it in or do you have to do the whole quarter ?

Small bit of progress today got the passenger wing off had hoped to get the AC lines out the way making it easier to get to the bolts at the inside/top of the wing but nuts under the sill were seized solid so a bit of fiddling to get the bolts out. contemplating removing the AC altogether not a huge requirement for Scottish summers Laughing

Good news is the inner wing is spot on with the rust localised to the corner of the windscreen.

Well eventually found some time to get back to the car, when you buy cars of this age you don`t really know what your getting untill you start tearing it apart
someone went to the time and considerable expense to put new wings on the least they could do is put all the bolts back in ! a couple missing from the trunk side and the 2 awkward ones at the top in the wheel arch missing wing practically fell off once the bolts were out no tape or sealer on wing on any of the edges the good news is wing is perfect and only very light surface corrosion on inner wing. also removed the sill cover and good news is sill and rear quarter are perfect did notice the small packer/screw that holds the thermostat to the sill is broken something else to put on the list for repair the only other couple of bodges are the clips either end of the sill were put on with sikaflex rather than fixing the clips.and again rather than spraying underseal over the wing join its covered in waxoyil apoligies for the poor pictures .

well some more small progress got the door handles off , that`s a fun job getting the inside nut off , also got the mirrors off tried to seperate the bases for painting and broke a glass I have managed to do this with every set of mirrors I have removed so if anyone has a spare glass in the garage .

Got round to the rear bumper soon became apparent its never been off and probably why it was a different colour from the rest of the car. speed nuts screws with small heads no room to get a decent turn on them . I am going to look at alternative fittings putting them back.

The bonnet badge had been stuck on with sikaflex

Now the bad news is the lower lip/flange on the rear quarter has rotted out and still have some bubbles further along however will all get cut out just about ready to send to the metalwork man.
