The side of the tower showed signs that it too craved attention....

No prettier from under the arch..the grot had spread quite a way up the hollow parts of the reinforcing section

In stead of recreating the double skinned scenario where you actively promote corrosion I made a new repair piece out of single skin but as thick as the 2 pices, the ribs took an age to from in them!

The chassis side under the bottom reinforcer wasn't up to much either..

I'm wondering what you used to create the reinforcing ribs?

Only way to me mate!
I always preach to anyone that will listen, welding a plate is the same if it's 4" square or 4' square. May as well get rid of the lot whilst the grinder is at hand.
Will say though that it's not as scary to do now as it was at first, you sometimes feel there's no car left!

A tool similar to this, called a bead roller or sometimes a Jenny Wheel
Handy tool for rolling the curved wheel arch sections too.

That looks like it might be worth investing in. Did you have to press the swages in stages or was it one continuous slow roll?

On thinner more regular stuff like 1mm or even 1.2mm steel you can do it in one pass.
This steel was about 2.5mm thick so it had to be done in a few runs, nearly more than the tool could handle in reality, hence the wobbly lines!

The drivers side strut tower and inner wheel arch was much the same process as the other side so I won't go through all that again.

One job that I had been putting off for some time was to clean the underside of the years and years of underseal and mess that had gathered there, not a nice job.

The black underseal was scraped off using a heat gun and a wallpaper scraper, best combination I find for that job. Messy and hot, but best.


Once all that was cleaned off then we were down to the factory rubberised stuff that I use a knotted wheel on an angle grinder to take off, this flings it about a bit but cleans it efficiently and also if there are any rust spots under it then it cleans that too, just be careful not to have exposed skin as the little needles off the knotted wheel easily stick in your cheek! A full face mask is a must, not just goggles.

After a few hours and a bucket full of rubber crumb you end up with a fairly clean surface...
