Dunno Eddie, it may just be that that's how the metalwork was behind the crusty bit, so that's the shape I cut the new panel.

Done for the day. It's had a new back box and, despite it not failing on the condition of the discs, (very bad), I've replaced them and the pads, as I'm sure the disc wear and corrosion was the cause of the brake issues.
I've also lubed up the drivers window mech, re-fitted the drivers door trim and associated bits and re-fitted the pipe from the air box to the grill.
We'll see how it fares on the re-test next week! Wish me luck.

Also fitted the spare wing mirror for the drivers side, the original was damaged, and the two new front indicators. The originals passed the test but were very clouded over.

The aforementioned rot, cut out, a little more cleaning up and it'll be ready to weld.

CAD in practice.

Nearly there.

Ah, you're done. I'm too late then to add a caveat about the "notch" - that's actually a fairly vital bit of it as that forms a hinge mechanism when there's not enough strength in it. See my thread on it here: http://autoshite.com...fuckstix-fixed/

 

and have a few photos from it:

I missed that Joe! Yep, it wasn't too bad really, discs and pads sorted the brakes and a rear box for the exhaust, and of course the welding as outlined above.

Apologies to Vulg if this isn't up to his standard, I can't get the phrase out of my head though when thinking of cleaning a car well, particularly if it hasn't been cleaned for a while.
Today seemed as good a day as any do I decided to give the ex Krujoe 106 a good clean. As you can see from the pictures it's suffering from a fair amount of lacquer peel on its once fine light metallic blue.
It was also filthy.
I reasoned that if I gave it a good clean then polished it all at least the good panels would shine and rain would bead up on the whole car, so off I went.
I'm only just shy of being a TBW, but had to reign myself in due to time constraints.
I sprayed the whole thing with Fenwick's, a caravan cleaner that's good at shifting long standing mould spots, moss, etc. Then I sponged, rinsed and leathered it off. I cleaned the glass using Rain X and put some life back into the black trim and bumpers with boiled linseed oil. Then I polished it with Autosmart Mirror Finish.
It would be nice if all the panels came up as well as the side you can see, but they don't I'm afraid. I do think though it wears it's paint issues well and would probably get away with being described as 'patina', were I to sell it from a gravel drive in front of a borrowed stately home or a white room.

That's looking super, Spart, better than it ever did with me already.

 

Thanks for the update, it's a brilliant little car, and we do miss it.
