Another piece was on the opposite side chassis rail, where the gearbox mount plate goes.
Some surface rust which got chopped out and repaired..

Bits like the "chassis rail top meets the bulkhead and inner wing/strut area" are really satisfying the way they disappear.  Got the radius bang on.  Can see that "it might be ok" is NOT as assumption to make from all the places you've "been curious" and peeled back to have a look see.

Are you putting any extra structure in?  (noticed the extra plate on the RHD conversion) I think it was "Thurbs" race car build thread that listed a few mods.

Looked back and nothing definitive...but maybe it would pop out the pictures to someone more familiar with them:

I'll have a look through that thanks David, always happy to follow advice from other builds.
I am planning on making extra strengthening sections for bits like the strut tops, I'll do that once I can get the car on the tilter soon.

A few more interesting bits to come on here yet though.

This is a picture of what I think Abarth added to the works cars.

Think I've seen those kits available somewhere, could have been Walkers?
Think it was about 1500 though!
I'll probably have a good look at them then make my own  Wink

Interesting that its more at the front than the back - any of that holding the engine in or all for suspension loads?   

Looking at it the pillars seem obvious places to double up, but only AFTER looking at it.

I suspect the amount of strengthening at the front is because that hits first on both take off and landing. If the back hits first your rally is probably over anyway!

I'll post a few more pictures again, seeing as it's been a while since I bombarded you all!

The drivers side rear arch had corrosion mainly inside the car!

A few plates needed as there was some degree of curvature in several directions plus a strengthening seam for the underside, as it picks up the seat belt mount strength of repair was important.

The outer lip was deemed unfit so I made a new one, here ready for fitting after shaping to suit the arch and importantly fitting inside the door shut!
