Once reattached with some 2 pack epoxy resin it's actually nice and strong a repair, the stalk was able to rotate the switch OK without glue so with the metal being square in section it allowed plenty of surface area in the glued join to make strong again to be used without fear of breaking.

With the excess glue trimmed off and a quick spray of matt black it looks OK enough and works perfectly.

Bigger fish to fry yet!

I searched online for new outer sills to use rather than patch what I have, stumbled across a UK company offering a pair for around 50 Inc delivery so placed an order with the feeling that I'd get an email saying no longer available, here's a refund.
To my surprise though I did get an email saying that they weren't a stock item, but would be delivered with 1 to 2 weeks if that was OK?
Still fully expected another email saying that they are unfortunately not available after all.
Imagine my surprise to get a notification a few days ago saying my order has been processed and the parts are on their way...
As yet not arrived but more hopeful now... Just hope it's not a pair of drivers side ones!

It's nice to see it creeping forwards. Fingers crossed for the sills. If they turn out to be all right I hope you will share the name of the supplier.

I will indeed Frank, assuming they turn up..
Had asked a place in Hungary who had an OS one but couldn't get a NS, that was at about twice the price just for the drivers side though!

We would like your thoughts on the new panels also... perhaps they do drivers side front wings?

New outer sills arrived today, appear to be great quality. Includes the portion that sits behind the front wing, goes to the door seal lip too so will make a better repair than a skin sill, even get the bottom few inches of the rear quarter panel so no danger of damaging the swage line.

Thankfully a matching pair came!
They do look well made, strong and appear pretty accurate.

I've been lucky having the last couple of months off work on the furlough scheme so have managed to get things in order at my rented unit, the alfa sud restoration is pretty much complete so it's onto the Y10 next.
My friend is coming over on Sunday to trailer it up to my unit for me, today I set about taking the interior bits out such as dash, door cards, roof lining etc.

The rear inner arches have been waxoyled in the past which has helped preserve it, still has daylight in the passenger side though where there was a scab on the outside.

I've one more week off work so plan on making a start on it, was going to be a quick weld and use but with the lack of anywhere much to go in it this summer I'll strip it right back and go through it all, may even drop the engine and gearbox out then fix it to the tilter rollover jig, more effort to get it on it but a huge improvement on comfort of repair, not to mention making access so much better.

Will this be the first Y10 ever to go on a rotisserie rather than just patched?

I was unsure whether to go to the trouble or not but I want this car to have a fighting chance for the future, being able to easily tip it on its side or upside down will make it easier to go the whole 9 yards, not having a deadline to finish it also helps!

I managed to get a pair of those sills so very interested to see how you go about changing the old ones out
