Had a few hours on the car today and managed to trim some more weight out of it !!!

Cross bracings on floor removed and pillar bracings removed

Pillar bracing in place


And with it removed



This all what was removed today



And gave the inside a good clean out ready for cage now that's next


All cuts still need cleaning up and made tidy but they can be done after the cage is all in its coming on now :)

Few hours on it tonight so time to fit the rear bumper and side supports




Next I have started to blend arches and skirt to the car looks better



Next was some more weight saving !! Now you probably thinking not possible but it was the passenger door has been skinned


Also there is no need for a door handle so I have removed that you will see the plate put over the hole in above picture and this is it finished after a bit of filler


So not a bad few hours on the car another step closer :)

Things are moving along well I have mounted the passenger door skin and have mounted the boot and front bumper

Brackets in place that are drilled and tapped 6mm to take the bolts



And door skin bolted in place



Next is the front bumper plates added and front bumper secured


The top section of bumper / grill I'll pick up of bonnet posts I'll show that in another update when I come to that part

Yeah I do have a pipe bender however due to my limited time I ordered in a cage that you just have to trim and weld in and add any extra bars I want then ontop


Another step closer this evening bonnet height on pins got to be adjusted but another couple of jobs of the list. Bonnet pins, grill support, name plate , plate over fuel filler cap and front side repeaters in wings.. The joys of bodywork.

Next on the list complete rear section of cage and fit centre windowscreen bar , mount seat fully, finish of steering column and plate inner rear arches, remove a few odd brackets and a good clean up of spotwelds inside and hopefully have inside in primer by the end of weekend :)
