My personal 2p worth - I chopped mine 2.5" at the back and 2.25" at the front, enough to look 'right' but not enough to look squashed.
Thanks for the Chop Pics and thoughts, tomorrow is welding up the rear arch faces that are totally shot and rear valance if it get to it :-) , thanks
A few more bits started
The boot was rotten, so cut the bottom off and made a new inner, just the skin to do.
Made one of the 'A' post and the two 'B' post bottoms, one's fitted, started to fit the rear valance (gosh, a plasma cutter makes cutting the old off so easy :-)
Plus the sills have arrived, decided to buy the valance and sills to save time. Just need to turn the sills in to running boards now.
Arch repair started
Not a huge amount done, but little by little...
3 days cutting, fitting, filling, grinding and its still not finished, but its a big improvement. Interesting the pictures make the grind marks look horrid, in the flesh it looks much better.
To this, still working in progress, but a bit better, once the welding and grinding is finished it will get a coat lead to fill the worst.
The old filler hole looks terrible in this picture now its filled, but its good in the flesh, must be the flash or something, I was pleased with it till I saw the pics
And the bottom 2" of the rubber lips all repaired as well, although they don't show in the pics.

New drive shaft fitted .. :-)
Xmas arrived late.. made a new bench on casters so I can start preparing the new "Nobody" crafted front end and the Jag rear end for epoxy primer before the rust gets hold

Loving these builds at the moment, it may seem like people aren’t taking notice, but they do help people like me with a big build on the go
Pops a garage life boat today... river has burst its banks, fingers crossed it does not come up more, one way of getting the floor cleared and washed :-)
Looking down the lane at the end thats flooded
My Life boat waiting...
