Boot floor inspection

I can't believe I am actually writing this, but yes I have started to work on another section of the car... the boot!! (or trunk for my American followers)

This is a particularly challenging area of the car, so I will need to take my time. Certainly on the right hand side where some of the worst rust damage can be seen.

You can see some of the damage from underneath as well as from the top.

There was so many botched repairs that will make it harder to work out where the new metal should go. Speaking of new metal, I picked up the new panel from Moss, which is the biggest panel I'll have to weld in.

I have taken the decision to replace the whole floor. I just don't see the point trying to restore such a damaged section. So over the next few weeks I will be removing the patch panels and cutting out the rust and making way for this new panel. I seem to remember I will need to do a lot of spot weld drilling! Which reminds me I need to buy a new set of spot weld drills as mine are blunt!
