Hey Michael, good job!

The only thing worse than rust are PO repairs.
Where are you getting the replacement sheetmetal?
(or are you gonna fab it all yourself)

Keep us posted of your progress

cheers,

Jeroen

Hi Jeroen,
got that nice piece of metal on US Ebay. I think it is from Autoatlanta.
The other parts i have to make myself.
That piece in the picture above was not so hard to fabricate and it fits realy good.
Just can´t wait to do the welding (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif) . The cutting out and cleaning the rusted parts is a little frustrating.

WOW !!. That is crazy.

You did a great job with the brace. We normally use a larger/stronger "tube" with adjustable ends similiar to what you made. Put some preload in your adjuster. Make the car spread apart a few mm's more than a stocker. When you weld the car it will shrink when it cools.

HOPEFULLY you will receive your parts from AA in a timely fashion. Next time you order anything from anyone stateside ASK THE CLUB first. The maker of that piece that supplies everyone is a member of this forum.

You should also look in our Vendors area for the new stiff kit that was recently released. It goes on the inside of the frame rail inside the car under the carpet and wraps all the way around the passenger compartment.

Hi Brad,
received the part with no problems. The transaction was closed in only 2 weeks.
Can´t tell anything bad about them, till now!
I am also looking for the engine shelf, made yesterday an inquiry to restoration design for the shipping fee.

What do you think how much more mm for the spreading?
638mm is the target.

The brace is of solid steel 25*10mm, and it feels very strong. Think it would hold the car together.

Really? So we could get AA sheetmetal repair parts, without going through AA? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Hi guys,
did some welding (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif) on the inner long.
took the longest time to clean up that rusty mess. welding was done in half an hour. I am realy happy about the progress. I think in an week or so the car can stand on his own feet again.

Very cool! You are doing a great job! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

One of my customers came in for a windshield leak. I spent about 2 hours welding little holes up and cleaning up rust in the lower corners before I could put the windshield back in. I am no body man, I tell people that and they have seen my car. I say this is as good as I can do, they still say looks good to them.

I am with you though, I love to weld. Dam, sometimes I wonder around the garage wondering what I can weld together. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif)
