    Thanks Al. I'll drop you a line tomorrow. That's a very kind offer.

    I've now attached most of the bits under the bed...

    It was so nice welding new metal to new metal. Some of the welds looked like some that you guys produce.

    But does anyone know exactly where this little fella goes?...

    Bingo! Thanks Nick Nack. And yes, new metal feels sublime. Although I've just found more rot inside the other sill (repaired badly and rotten again). It was well disguised. And I think I might have to replace most of the drivers floor too.

    if you're gonna do it, may aswell do it properly! i regret not putting new floor pans in, my reason was because they were already new, but i should've just done it for peace of mind.

    Yours will be nice and rot free for years to come! just make sure to epoxy the whole thing!

    Today has been enjoyable. I've chopped out more rust and prepared some new bits to go in.
    Here's an aerial view of my efforts. I'm looking forward to welding in my new panels tomorrow.
    I've had to cover my new inner panels with weld through primer as it's all I have and I thought it better than bare metal. Once it's all built I will give it all a high colonic with that waxy stuff I've seen a few of you pros use.

    I suspect after all this..... you will be considerably more "pro" and caddy knowledgeable with actual experience than most of us

    No chance. I will always be a novice. I'm middle aged and fanny about on the weekends. Many if the good folk on here have been playing with this sort of stuff for decades and some professionally, so I know my place for sure.
    I very happy occupying the bottom rung, all visitors welcome.

    I finished the 'innards ' and I'm going to run a new outer sill down the side as the old one has holes.

    As you can see, I haven't welded the part near the inner arch. I figured the inner was coming out so I'd wait and weld it to the new bit once I get to it.
