Rear Panel Inspection

The rear panel has two main damages areas. The first is where is is connected to the boot floor as you can see from the photos below.



The second is the damage to the offside (right) rear lights housing which is pointing inwards.



It is clear that a repair has been made before from the welding marks on the inside.



The only option I could see was to cut the rear panel away from the rear lights housing.



That allowed me to persuade (bang with the hammer) the lights housing to go back more or less inline to its original position.



I will need to spend a lot more time to get this right but for now I am happy that I am confident I can restore this panel back to its original shape which is necessary to get the new floor in place.
