A lot to take in for one night, I promise to try some more if there is an appetite for it?

With the work to the rear 1/4 to bumper areas (for which I needed to keep mounting the bumper itself) now done I could at last get the car on the tilter frame.
This means bolting a frame front and rear to the car which then mount onto A frames each end which then allow the car to rotate through 360 degrees, full rotation so you can weld at whatever angle you need.
This frame I've used on a few AlfaSuds so thought it could easy enough be adapted to suit the Delta?

Sorry for the poor quality 'phone pictures...

Roof just clears the floor by a few inches...

The reason for turning the car upside down was to gain better access to the rear suspension turrets and make the repairs much easier.

This was what was left of the inner rear arch and strut top to fathom out...not pretty!

Majority of the strut mount was OK, just the side return section needed cutting out. This is also the piece that's inside the car towards the inner C pillar near the seat belt point, mine was the fully floating type!

A repair piece was made up from the same thickness 2mm steel as the rest of the tower.

Joining section for the inner C pillar, again the access to repair was much easier on the tilter frame.

The inner rear arch was another item that I had little idea of what it should look like as there was nothing much to remove!

Simplest option was to start building it up in manageable sections..

The section for under the arch itself was a bit more tricky, it needed to follow the contours of the outer arch closely to be a tight fit to weld but made from strong enough steel to be usefully strong.

All welded in, not the prettiest but solid again.

At last, no view of the road through the rear light opening!
