Close the doors before you sand it down, and make sure next doors washing is not out.

Green at last

1k so not that shiny, I don't do 2k

Colour match looks to be better than the previous job I did on it a decade ago.

Its not the best repair but as I was told years ago by a frustrated employer and now friend ' it doesn't have to be good, it only has to be good enough, just get it painted'IMG_20170622_150944_hdr.jpg

Welding and painting outside in a heatwave hasn't been much fun but is infinitely better than trawling eBay and other places for a replacement (and what would I replace it with?). Travelling far and wide to look at badly described cars is soul destroying but fixing such a faithful yet battered car is pleasing to me, would be a waste to throw it away

Agree wholeheartedly. Well fixed!
I would do the same with the Saab. Faithful old thing etc. Although seems ok at the moment.

Look at this tidy old ZX..IMG_20170727_143738_hdr.jpg

Let's just give it a light tap...IMG_20170727_143919_hdr.jpg

Bugger. Best take off the trim and have a better look at itIMG_20170727_170009_hdr.jpg

Suppose I had better look at the other sideIMG_20170727_170000_hdr.jpg

Oh well...

Slightly safer design than the 306 though

Kin 'ell man! I'm almost seriously thinking of asking you for weldings to my crappy Sterling. Wouldn't mind getting that bloody thing back on the road. All it needs is a radiator, welding to sills and an MOT. You done an excellent job on that Peugeot.

Just a couple more pics of rot. Patches on patches which are all starting to rot out too. Chassis rails gone too. The car was outwardly tidy too
