Rear of the passenger sill got boxed in today, all standard stuff as per the other side. That's the sills all but done.
With the door back on the wing could be mounted and a new bottom section made for it then the mount let in the sill. All lined up nicely.

You may notice some nasty scabs around the wheel arch, they looked worse than they were for a change! Fully expected to find some holes but even the underside wasn't bad at all.
I could have cleaned and treated it and hoped it'd be OK but for the sake of a bit more effort I cut the bad metal out and made a new arch edge. At least I know it'll be fine instead of hoping it will be.

Back in the day people used to weld the bottom of Minis by rolling them on to their roof on an old mattress or some old tyres (you probably have access to the latter!). I wondered if you could do something similar by packing under the roof and detaching the rotisserie frame while you weld up the back corners? I recognise the possibility though that Minis' had a much heavier grade of roof so a Y10 might be too flimsy to take that treatment.

It's not far for it to reach the ground so is a possibility, the risk of having some big dents to sort in the roof afterwards so sort out not so appealing  Grin
I wonder if there is somewhere that the body could be supported at the back though, worth investigating  Cool

Trestles and beams through the door openings might work as the weight would then be taken by the sills.

That could work Frank, especially as the weight would be hanging down so less likely to want to flip over.
I'll have a look at it on Tuesday when next working on it.


Been at work all day today but went up to the unit tonight to spray all the bits and pieces I've been cleaning, electrolysis rust removing and painting over the last few weeks. Painting them tonight and leaving to hang up will allow them to be nicely dried off by Tuesday where they can have a few more days hanging in the big unit, the 2pack paint dries nice and hard but without a heated booth it takes a little longer to be fully damage resistant.

Anyone for a game of guess the part?  Grin

In total there was 25 pieces, still a few bits at the powder coaters which will come back ready to fit but they're blasting the rear axle and red oxide spraying it for me so that will need painting. I didn't want powder coat on the bearing surface to have to clean off plus the centre mount bush is in great order so that could stay in.

It would be cheating for me to play guess the part.

All the underfloor stuff is now removed and I've started to clear away the old underseal and rubberised sealant, which is a really messy and time consuming job, two days into the process so far..
Thankfully the floor is in really good shape, a couple of areas where the sealant was starting to let go but a bit of treatment is all that's needed. Only area so far that I've uncovered to need welding is where the fuel filler tube sits there was a piece of protective rubber sleeve on the chassis seam which had trapped moisture, shouldn't be a bad job to weld up.
Hoping to get the rest of the floor cleared tomorrow then I'll weld that area and clean the rest. It will be etch primed then seam sealed before stoneguard renewed all over. I've decided to paint the underside in body colour rather than it be done black, or in underseal.
