    The left side was much the same as the right, rear corner rusted out and beat up and full of bog. Vents were bent, twisted and split. Off it comes...

    The front section of the left wheel arch was hacked open and was caved in. Photo doesn't show it very well. Was lucky enough to get an original section to repair this... Still needs to be finished off and the lower section repairing but much better

    Some work on the passenger side B pillar. The Klassic Fab inner pillar didn't have this little pressing. My OCD kicked in so I transferred if from the OG panel onto the new one...

    Also the front section of the new B pillar didn't have the door striker adjustment ribs. So I measured off the old one and transferred it to the KF one...

    The window frame rot on the passenger side cut out and repaired...

    The only idea I have is to help lock the striker onto the body , when bolted down and reduces the chance of it moving over time.
