thanks for ur comments guys,heres sum pics frm yesterday an the day b4
dirty floor but once the plates r welded up im jst going to wax oil it again even tho i'd like it white under there,i wud do it but a lack of a garage stop me cos im really arsed doing this outside
wear the diff sits
right rear arch in need of tlc

havent taken the plastic wheel cover off the left rear yet but i guess it'll b the same as the right
then emptyed the boot to get at the rust in there rwd wer the fuel pump cradle sits an u can see through the floor so tryed to take the pump off but both nuts had seazd an had to prize the rubbers out of the holes

and behind my number plate has started to crack an rust as well as the arch's an other places but once the work has finished underneth its goin to have the bodywork done,full new arch's and a full respary in diamond white
and here r sum parts that got painted the other day


jst need to clean up the calipers and fuel pump,filter and cradle as i wont b doin much today wiv it like this


will keep u's up to date wiv my progress
