Although the rear sills didn't look to bad i thought i would expose them anyhow as there was slight pitting. The off side one was original but the near side one had been replaced well at least they tried as there was filler at the back. It looked as though the car had been slightly grazed on the near side against something some time age. You can see by the graze below the door jam & also where they tried to touch up just above the rear quarter. Any how there off & you can see what i found. Not to bad as the flea was a lot worse. Off side is very solid & near side is a little worse. Im going to treat it all first inside & out to see what im left with.


I know the cutting out is a bit messy at the moment but i'll tidy that up when the new sills arrive. Just wanted the chemicals to do there thing.

Worked last night. Been up a while now & got my head on straight. Mmmmm i think i'll get them calipers off & give them a strip down & clean up. I'm gonna throw the discs away as they are a bit crazed & new ones are not to expensive.
I was going to have a go at the welding the quarter's myself but after talking to a mate of mine he said he would spot weld the new ones for me when its ready. May still have a go myself as i have the gear but only used to welding thick old beams & stuff. I'll have a think on that one as it may be a good learning curve :eek: Maybe play around on some thinner sheet first :think:
