Knew about the grille having rust, seems like it will be an awkward repair, bound to be rusted down the fins..

Bracket had just the bottom half useable which handily is the main piece, top half I'll remake to suit.

Work continues, drivers side rear quarter repairs on the menu today.
Not as much of a blind alley now I've done one side.
Corner piece welded in once I'd got down to the solid metal that is.
Then a repair piece for the inner lower panel to join to the reinforcer.

The salvaged bottom half of the bumper bracket mount then needed fitting, and the missing upper section making as this side is also the towing bracket so needs to be strong..

Fit is decent again using the rear light as a guide and measurements taken before cutting the old one off..
I'll make up the inner sections tomorrow before the outer can be welded into place..

Today I repaired all the inner sections to box the rear inner arch in.
Then the outer skin went on.
Sounds simple but needed to keep making bits and trial fitting but I got there.

Trial fitted the bumper and rear lights, happy to say it all lined up nicely.

All ship shape at last with no rot left at all. Should be good for a number of years to come.
Next visit I'll start on the windscreen surround, most of which will be fairly straightforward apart from the section at the vents...

Making my way around the windscreen surround now, not as bad as it could be. Just small pieces that need replacing, rest is cleaning up OK.

All across the top cleaned up just fine using a knotted wheel for the rough stuff, then a carbide bit to dig into the pitted bits then a hand held grit blaster to clean the remainder up got it back to all good clean metal.
Passenger side had a couple of spots that looked a little thin after the same process so just simpler to cut it out and weld in new metal whilst at this stage.
