Great advice Eric. The RHS was done over 10 years ago and is still pristine. This new work will definitely get the same treatment… but this is expensive!!  And I certainly wouldn’t want any of my family to have to revisit it for many years.

Expensive because it's time consuming.  There's no way to do it properly and quickly - if only! With Eric on the dinitrol I'll need a barrel of the stuff and as usual it will go everywhere, including me and the drive.

Worthwhile investment though - with luck they'll outlive us.

Really important to deal with all three sections of the sill.  Here we are fully cut back to good metal.  The centre section could easily be hidden but is so important for strength.

A patch was needed in the footwell too.

And after a little tidying up on the door bottom and at the rear of the sill, it was ready for painting.

Nice to see a great car back together and not being metallic paint you have a much better chance of it being invisible even under sodium street lights.

Hi Neil,
It’s Auto Bodycraft in Stokesley. Alex has a great team and has been my go-to for the complicated bodywork stuff for around 15 years now. Colour match is spot on too!
