Unfortunately on a Y10 the back corner of the boot is within 12" of the rear seat belt mounts. Better safe than sorry.

Today I got the main plate tacked in for the OSR corner but tomorrow I disappear to Wales to play 17th century for five weeks so there will be no more progress for a while.

Any lessons for the rest of us?

Two things come to mind.

 Welding seems to need lots of practice, and I need plenty more still. However once you can fill in the holes you've blown without making even bigger holes then you are on your way doing something useful.

The other thing to remember is that your car started out as flat sheets of metal and can be remade from the same. You can't replicate a complex pressing in one go but you can resolve it into a series of simpler parts that you can then be joined together.

Do I hear the sound of grandmothers sucking eggs?

I like the "once you can fill in the holes you've blown without making even bigger holes"...
