finally got the car to my mates garage so i can weld on the strengthening kit, and remove the rear cage and seat rails, excess brackets and so on
ready to go

we removed the tailgate, doors, windows, rear cage and seat rails, basicallyanything left!





plate kit, ready for fitting

my attempt at an 'arty' shot, that welder's got some work to do this week!



hopefully get mrS round to mount the doors this week, so should be in the body shop soon :D

the guyput an internal linkage in from an astra of all things :rolleyes: ;) so that'll be gone soon, and yes, very 'clubman' prep at the mo, seat rails were made from bits of old filing cabinet judging by their original coulour, and he left the original runners in! fuel lines were copper in plastic sheating, etc etc, will all be sorted when its rebuilt though, probably jet wash it inside and out too!

You going to prep and sray the interior?

Good luck with that if you are. You'll want to go back to the welding when you start doing that. lmao


Kit's dead straightforward once you've worked out what goes where. Oh and keep a hammer handy You'll need it.;) :confused:


Oh and a fire blanket as well (underseal catches real quick lmao )

Excellent Lee, at least now you've got it somewhere you can work on it properly. i.e. with power! lol

I reckon it'll be a while before it's in the bodyshop for paint though! ;) Are you side mounting your seat this time? Was it base mounted last time?
