Looks like you've done this many times. But great, this is encouraging @shielsy !
hope this helps the time you l waste on repairing that front doing it this way is cheaper
When you've got your skill! - nice
if you do a front panel the way i do it , i find it quick . then when its off its easier to drill out the spot welds and use vise grips to pull the remains of the panels of , as seen in pics
Plus it opens everything else to be assessed repaired and painted so it lasts.
Owen you should buy a whippet move to yorkshire and open a restoration workshop
am a great dane man but i liked that one i sent you in pic lovely wee thing
I've been hammering pretty hard this week, it's amazing what you can do with those guys:
But how the hell do you remove the rear side panel covers?
They seem to be clamped and should slide up if I understand, but mine are completely stuck, I removed both screws (broke one of each actually). Don't want to use brute force on them.
They should slide up but often need a little persuasion
Ok so no special trick there. I think the rubbery rim got very sticky, or might have even been glued generously, it's now pretty cooked and hard to slice through. Heating it up may help.
I can be persuasive. Thanks !
