    had to make a part 2 to the build thread as the fist one is has maxed out on pictures I can add!

    So after the wheel test fit it is back on the stands she goes for more welding

    Time to cut out more rotten sills and mounts

    And rebuild inner sills middle an outer all rebuilt/replaced
    As said previous not the worlds tidiest welding but it is strong that's all that counts!

    That's about it for now! Hopefully update again in the coming weeks!
    This feels like a never ending game of welding!

    Still need colour ideas too! Any help will be greatful!

    Been a long time since I updated this!

    I’m not going to bore you with more welding and sills replacement and patchwork!

    The gtr boot/spoiler has gone replaced with KR fibreglass flush fitting boot
    80D73D2E-AE8A-46F6-B14A-3F4CC1CD1F5E.

    Rear nudge bar/jack bar is being rebuilt so bare with me on that one .

    Also managed to pick up some vented front wings and jun side skirts quick test fit before stripping her down for painting now I have decided on a colour!

    3E9D8F9E-F378-4E8B-B6CC-81D68FB0EE5E.

    Inside has all been red oxided and the underseal done!

    08B916EC-52ED-4848-A14B-8EBFAD2F02C0.


    A22102FD-B62A-48AA-8254-21F62FB8FD73.

    Underside red oxided and under sealed
    5BC9D5F1-86F4-4DAA-88D1-C579D33CF341.

    Bucket seats mounted (not mounted in pics)

    C9130DF3-B278-4AC0-A74F-894D31AA2830.


    Then everything stripped down ready for paint
    CC09C8AB-1CD7-4863-9416-A2B6C7548DCC.

    Quick coat of white primer and a flat down, yes it’s painted on the driveway as I don’t plan on keeping the paintwork clean for long! Especially with practice this year with Oliver Evans on the local track


    89F59F26-9107-46AA-B888-75F463A39881.

    And boom as if by magic the minion r33 banana boat appeared
    918E3310-C4E7-4B42-A37E-9E724F130962.

    53226597-BEF2-4D04-913D-A1B403C4C09D.

    Waiting on a few parts and materials for the exhaust system so made a start on a job I have been putting off for a long time

    Cutting back the loom and getting rid of redundant wires

    67C8C392-2A04-4B3E-AE85-A1FFD232F2EB.

    Believe it or not this was the second pile
    58BED030-1546-4B50-8E5B-F69CE9BABBDE.

    Finally a lot less wires

    D7F6F910-3AE8-4E73-8586-F93B09275E2C.

    That’s pretty much it for now! A lot more to come over the next couple of weeks will up date this as and when I can

    @Daniel Brendan Isn't the media limit set per post not per thread? Good work tackling all of that rot!

    It used to be 20 images per post I think. So if you make a new post you can add another 20.

    It might have changed now though

    What sheet metal did you use to fix those sills?
