Not the best conditions to be welding in laid half on gravel but at least I have a carport to keep the elements off, just if it gets breezy it's like a wind tunnel!

Am confident if there's a breeze you'll work out how to rig a tarb or fence panel or something to kill it...

Yes, it should be fine David.
I've had to do a few cars like this before I rented a unit, my first Alfasud got restored on the same driveway and that was a rough car!

I meant to say that I do have a driver's door spare but I would be tempted to try and bend the existing one back into shape. I have just patched up my door bottoms with stuff I had lying about but once rust is in the fold at the bottom I don't think there's any long term cure apart from cutting off and replacing the bottom of the door skin.

Yes, agree that making this one fit better is a good plan, I tried a little by hand which improved it no end. I've a plan to get it back in shape.

Despite saying I wouldn't touch the car today the temptation was too much to resist.

Little hope in mind that the bottom lip would be useable, which proved correct.
Not all bad though, the metal an inch above still has very good protection so has lasted well.

Front section behind the wing bottom is in decent shape, simple enough to repair. Wing bottom is trash so I'll have to make a new section for that.

Rear section under the rear quarter and back towards the arch needs some work, rear suspension mount area likewise but not as bas as it could have been.

Weather looks vastly improved for tomorrow so I'll make a start on it.

You might as well have that wing off whilst you're about it. (You were probably planning to anyway.)

You're right there Frank, in fact the more I looked at it the more things were adding up.
The rot had, predictably, spread further than first appeared. The layer between the floor and central sill where they angle up together is rotten for a couple inches. Outwardly they looked OK but peeling them apart there's rust between the sandwiched layers.
With work needed in the rear arch near the vulnerable fuel filler coupled with me getting less enthusiastic about laying on a cold gravel drive I've decided to not do the job half cocked and wait until I can get it up to my unit.
No point rushing about doing half a job and leaving rusting bits of floor.
So I'll be taking it apart when the time comes, get the shell up on my spit so I can tip it upside down. Everything will be done, rear arch has a hole so that will no doubt lead to other stuff. Front 'screen needs to come out as the seal is wrong and there's welding repairs needed behind it. If I repair it at the unit too I can give it all a full respray so with a bit of effort it will become a Y10 that should last for years to come.

A shame it won't be running this year but in the long run I'll only have to do it once rather than half a job now and again  in the future.  Most likely I'll start it at years end so welding through the Winter

Doing some digging for parts today I seem to have a spare new windscreen rubber that may be of use to you in the fullness of time.

I was digging about for some parts today and find I have a spare new screen rubber that may be of use to you when the time comes.

Appreciate the offer Frank. I have that new one in the bag that we thought might be a front seal but if it turns out not to be so I'll be in touch  Cool

On another note the alternator issue is fixed, turns out the voltage meter I've had for years isn't to be trusted, car is charging spot on perfect now I've used a tried and trusted meter, kind of makes me wonder if it was faulty in the first place, which in turn throws out ,my theory of the charging issue causing the rust issue under the battery...

Haven't totally abandoned work on the Y10, not fully. Had issues with my Alfa 145 so now that the head gasket and cambelt change is done maybe I'll get something more done with the Lancia..

Did refit the rear badges though. The silver lettering had faded a little, badges were already off and thankfully still in the car, on Frank's advice I had a stab at cleaning off the backing material then spraying the back of the badges silver which hasn't come out too bad from a distance..

On doing another little job a week or so ago though on the speedo binnacle I managed to break the light switch Stalk despite already been warned of how fragile they were  Cry

For now, and maybe forever, I've repaired it.
The break was I suspect where they all must break, where the metal insert finishes and it becomes solely plastic..

My repair solution was to strip back 10mm or so of the stalk revealing the square section of metal then drill a hole down the broken stem.
