    SambaS got a reaction from Kringle in Opel Monza GSE Automatic. Rust   
    Then had to address an area slightly further forward...
     

    In the photos it looks like I didn't put the steering box reinforcement bracket back on but I assure you I did.
    And then after rebuilding all the brake callipers took it for retest and the MOT man decided to fail it on more welding that he missed like four weeks prior 🙄
     
    Not really happy with the finish of the glossy black paint but should keep the salt off for now. Can be sanded off and finished properly at a later date.

    SambaS got a reaction from Kringle in Opel Monza GSE Automatic. Rust   
    Some time in 2020 I put this in for MOT and it failed on a few bits of welding. Two small holes in each front chassis leg, and then a small hole in the OSF inner wing.
    Then lockdown happened so I decided to take this to the scrapyard to make a proper job of the inner wing.
    There is the hole and a knarley looking suspension turret 😬
     

     

    I did some investigating with my grinder and finally it became clear why water was coming in the footwells.

    My heart sank as the rot went into the bulkhead, including almost all of the bulkhead side panel. These are not available new, they were part of the bulkhead assembly.

    As we know my old blue Duster was sold many moons ago and recently photographed outside of a commercial building so can't be doing it much good in the rain. Regret is a thing from which I suffer but have to keep moving forward!

    With MASSIVE thanks to Sam for delivering this fine automobile to frankly uncivilised places, where it will be issued with permanent leave to remain then given a job.
    Oh, and yes, it looks good from this angle too.

    Monza been pressed into daily service since I drove my Saab to Bulgaria and left it there in December.
    Today on the motorway the engine decided on catastrophic failure so apologies to the bloke I literally told yesterday that I had a spare engine to
     

    The plan is to fit my spare engine and possibly the gearbox too, then this one can come apart at my leisure and I will see if anything is salvageable. Its been burning 1.5 litres of oil per week and my mechanic told me it was about to blow up last year!
