    The fliller cap will be painted black metallic, with gold plated bolts. so it matches my BBS RM wheels i'm putting on the car. They have black metallic centers, gold plated bolts, and gold plated conical centercap "nuts"
    Will get red/gold BBS emblems for them aswell

    The wheels when they were freshly restored a few years back, they are still in pretty good condition as i havent driven much on them. But they could do with a nice clean and polish.

    Not a simple job is it. It didn’t help when I did mine I found that the rear quarter was full of filler already.

    I bet that sucked. I have done it once before on a mk2 golf, that was easier than this however.

    Todays progress

    Started taking the left rear door apart, found some nasty rust in the bottom seam, might have to write this one off.
    Its nice overall though, Will have a look if i can find a fresh one.

    Minor rust around the plate lights, but an easy fix
    IMG_0985.jpg
    This however isnt too fun, nothing has gone trough to the outside though, so could maybe be worth a try to save it

    For todays sesh i could not get the van into the shop as it was blocked in by a 2k with smashed up suspension, that the towing guys had dropped off with zero fucks given as usual..
    So i decided take the right side rear door off and work on that.

    First i stripped the door down completely, then i started dealing with the very minor rust it had, went at it with just about every tool we have in the arsenal to really get every single pore of it out, including a spot sandblaster and a really agressive rotary steel brush made specifically for rust and seam sealer removal
    IMG_0992.jpg

    Then i i went at it with 180 grit paper and sanded it down to bare metal, and then i straightened out a couple of small dents, then i went over the whole thing again, this time with 240 grit paper.

    Epoxy time in the small paint booth

    IMG_0995.jpg

    Still need to sort out the inside, and redo a bit of the seam sealer in the hinge cutout areas, some body filler work, and more primer.
    Next thursday i hope the van wont be blocked by some busted up car so i can get it in :P

    We get off work at 14.30 on fridays, but the shop closes later, so decided to stay for an hour and fiddle with the door some more.
    Sanded down with 240 grit, and a thin coat of 3M fine bodyfiller applied where needed
    IMG_0997.jpg

    Filler sanded with 180 and then 240 grit, most of it is more or less good now. Next step is a skim coat of Upol Dolphin glaze over much of the door

    Thanks guys
    Next week i hope to get some decent progress done for the right side of the body. Since i have the door off anyways, and the majority of the work on this side is done.
    Still some welding to do in the door sill area, a little bit under the rocker, and in the upper door hinge area. Also need to weld up some holes in the wheel housing from a previous shelf installation, and i need to fab up a new filler neck bracket as that thing is toast. Also want to take the front fender off soon so i can strip the whole rocker down to bare metal.
    I might finally have found a guy willing to get me some mexican headlights also, so thats exiting

    Tore her down a bit more

    Cut out some rust
    IMG_1011.jpg

    Started to dig into some stuff in the pinch, and i'm actually concidering to change this sill now. They are cheap enough, and it will save me time, and the quality of the repair would be better. Would cut down a Ibiza/cordoba/polo classic 4 door sill and join it in the factory seam probably, and cannibalize the left over rear peice to patch up the rust further back.
