Christ you've got your hands full with this! I'm surprised there's any clean metal there to weld back to, and knowing how bad evos rust too, finding one that isn't rotten will be tough. Good luck, sounds like it's going to be a tough job.
Im going to be putting on some new outer sills, and making my own inner sills,
The a posts and inner rear panel will be sand blasted, so will all be new and clean to weld to.
Ive got the evo 4 , i found one with rotten sills, which i will be removing anyway, so bonus.
Im just finishing a mk1 astra van on a toyota celica gt4 floor, this will be very similar with what we have to do.

Sabre saws are better cheaper and quicker than a grinder for dismembering !
Now we re getting somewhere.

Dont need these.
Doesnt look like an evo now !
Water had got into the a posts and was just sat there.
BODGING BxSTARDS COMES TO MIND, are we all in agreement ?

Hi and welcome to MIG. The Astra is an awesome project but this is just pure mental.... top job sir.
Please ensure all event and membership queries are sent to me and i will reply in due course.....Thank you
Looking forward to seeing this progress !
A few more pics...
We bob tailed the back end, to take the short arse nova
We need to mount the AYC pump somewhere else.
Power to weight is increasing all the time, another few kg off the build
Nova sill offered up to evo
Need to shorten the wheelbase which is the next job
Looks to be taking shape now the back end has gone.
Thanks for that, we should have the nova shell sat on in a few days, once we ve sorted the wheelbase, it needs shortening !
Will put some pictures up.

Vauxhall Nova Estate - Isuzu diesel, EPAS and it's an estate yo!
Vauxhall Carlton V8 - Lexus 4.0 V8, US Cop car paint and light bar
I used to be a real jerk but now i'm a people guy
Yes i hope it will be, the shorter wheel base should make it turn sharper
Cant wait to take it for a spin
