    right done a bit tonight

    rear floor patched up



    cut some crap out of the original sill and made the inner lip



    and the new sill






    should have the rear section done in the next few nights then its time to repair the front nose should have a front end coming tomorrow from volksfarmers so should be able to weld the light section back in

    well i havent posted much latley but have been busy on the 412


    i striped all the new metal and gave it 2 coats of por15 nice messy job lol



    and gave some bits a few coats as well



    the i covererd the whole front and back inner arches with seam seal to stop any water geting anywhere and it acts as a good stone chip



    its also been shultz thats been sprayed on but i aint got a pick of that

    i then started to prep the rear arch with its first layer of filler



    then rebuilt the rear suspension while the filler was going off



    then the last few days have been getting to this






    havent done much filler work befor quite happy how its turned out

    i can see a mot in the next 2 weeks


    not going to bother spraying it till next year so not to botherd about the preping work just yet will do that in the summer
