Floor & Sill Repair Preparation Update

Over the Easter break I managed to spend some more time working on my MG. The focus has continued to be removing old metal and preparing the existing panels to be ready to receive the new panels.

I am still working on the offside floor and have now removed enough metal to get a first test fitting on a new floor panel!

On Saturday I also managed to get the new cross member from Moss that I will be cutting to size and welding to the good part of the original.

It is so good to see the new panel in place, it really helps with my confidence and motivation. Drilling out all the spot welds is certainly a labour of love!

The rust damage around the rear bulk head is considerable and I will need to make up some repair sections myself to make good that area.
