Thanks Art for the above. I have had a bit of a holiday from Lottie with some other projects but now back in the fray. The rear end offside was badly repaired some long time ago and needs outer and inner panel work including replacing the end of the inner valance and a bit of the chassis (first time I have had to use 2mm plate): Below - D post from inside showing rust and chiseled out metal by some bodger in the past. The panel that sits over this area and joins both D pillars as well as the deck to the hinge panel was held in by a few tack brazes and lots of mastic. I can forgive rust which is natures way but these bodges were an insult to engineering. Below - The panel behind the hinge panel now beyond repair and difficult to source, so I will try and make one: So to the recovery phase, chassis, inner valance and D pillar repairs. I chopped out the pillar and reworked on the bench, it needs to be fitted and checked with each patch to make sure it is the right shape in all planes. I got it wrong twice and had to cut and weld again. Here it is offered up again but will not be fixed in place until I attend to the wheel arch/flap and firewall areas where access is better without the pillar.
