If that's "a short cut" and a "compromise".....   Lovely seeing this work.

"Colour matched by the paint suppliers in a straight solid colour rather than a basecoat and lacquer is a decent match for the underside, the topside of the car and wheel arches will be done in the correct stuff but this was easier and quicker."


Thanks David  Grin

The rear outer quarter got cut out which revealed the expected grot.
The led light underneath the arch coupled with the dodgy phone camera makes the arch look very blue!

Once the inner arch was cut back the bumper bracket was next as there was rust underneath it which needed assessing.

Just had to keep cutting until I got back to clean steel, or a mixture of clean steel and fresh air!

The bumper mount I've brought home with me as it is saveable but needs some rust cleaning off so the electrolysis tank will take care of that. Thinking I ought to invest in a small blast cabinet as although it's handy to do bits using electrolysis it would be easier still for small items like this to be able to blast them on site.

Yes, I thought of you Frank when taking it all apart, didn't look too bad when we viewed it at my house did it!
You were on the money again though , bad area for rust on the Y10  Cool

Started to make the repairs..
First little patch made the corner firm again on the reinforcing bracket.
After that a new lower inner arch to floor section went in.

Bumper bracket that I'd cleaned up last night then went back on.

Left that primer to run into the crevises and soak in so I'll make a new outer repair section next time and box in the inner wheel arch. Seam sealer will have gone off by then too.

I'll seam seal the inside once the welding is finished

With that drying I did a couple of tasks that keep getting put off, painting the last few bits of brackets and then separated the engine and gearbox to have a look at the clutch, needs a new one really while all apart.

The outer repair panel took some making, loads of differing waypoints that needed to be in the correct place.
Got there in the end, using clico fasteners so I could keep alignment accuracy whilst fettling it to fit.

Rear lamp was used as a guide for the fold alignment.

With the outer in the right place I could make up the inner section, now I knew where it needed to be made to!

Straight folded edge piece spot welded to curved outer repair panel, I'll be able to fix it all together next time as I've applied primer all over the inner pieces for as much protection as possible, some will of course get burnt off but you've got to try!

Got the front windscreen out today also, not without cracking it in numerous places though, anyone know where they're available from?
Might try and get it on the insurance though..
Some rust to repair..
