    Pats had a big day on the welding tools again..happy with the welder now he's got a fresh bottle of gas on it.
    Time for the seat base brackets. The section that was welded in didnt have any as everyone was out of stock.
    So just plain corragated floor sheet was put in. I found a supplier in the u.s.a. tha makes the pressed section we needed.
    20170926_161116_resized.jpg

    So this panel was fitted in 2 sections.
    20170926_151847_resized.jpg

    Dressed up an welded in.

    Just need the rear seat tab section fitted to the rear engine bay wall an sort the side seat brackets and then the seats can go in

    20170926_160717_resized.jpg

    Next is to weld in a bunch of seat bolt brackets.


    Then a heavier gauge finishing plate was made up and welded in ontop for the seat frame base to sit on.
    20170926_195805_resized.jpg

    The cargo doors lock in plate in the packet will get welded in when we fit the doors back on.
    Later on we'll finish the few small edging trim bits and ill get the floor sand blasted and repainted to clean it all up.

    20170927_112113_resized.jpg Pats finishing off the smaller welding jobs..
    View attachment 35110
    Passengers A pillar needed a few areas welded up. All ready for me clean and paint.
    The passengers B pillar door striker plate looked like its falled down the pillar.
    Pat cut a small slot for access, luckily it was only caught at the bottom of the bracket and he could slide it back up and rebend the bracket to lock it in.

    20170927_142614_resized.jpg
    Bumper stop are in, they need to modifeid later to suit the creative setup.
    20170928_013811_resized.jpg

    Also the shock absorbers are bolted in using the creative kit. Theres a newer kit which puts your shocks more straighter and give better travel , so ill replace mine later with them.

    Cargo doors refitted now were finished the main welding.

    20170927_195617_resized.jpg

    The rubber seals are pushing the door out of alignment so ill take tgem out and change to the car , not on the doors.
    All the doors will need fine tuning with adjustments at some stage.

    Front windows...

    Front doors are in with new mirrors. They need some adjustment tweaks, but they close o.k.

    Loving this Panel build and the speed you are getting it back together.
    Wish I could get mine over the line for Old Bar.

    Nice job.
