Bit more done, if anyone is still following.
The rear corner near the wiring loom earth had some rust, so that all got cut out but thankfully it only went a few inches along the back panel.
The side panel where the vent sits had been repaired before, both the rusted original and the rusted replacement had to be gone.

A new panel made for the floor and spot welded to the new vent opening panel.

The rest of the opening and the inner arch that is covered in black underseal I'll chop out next time, it can't be any good under there.

The outer panel is a bit like Swiss cheese, the inner section much the same.
A bumper mount would be handy too!

Following this one to the bitter end Kevin! Probably Mathewsons? These are the best sort of threads on the forum.

I think a Dedra Turbo is probably a keeper my sons rate the one I had as the best car Dad ever had.

OK, good to know people are following, I'll carry on posting!  Grin
Ideally I'd like to keep this one, I had one years ago and loved it then, in a lot of ways a better car than the integrale as it goes under the radar without drawing attention to itself yet is still very capable.
Whatever though I will endeavor to rid it of all rust so it can now have its future assured.

There's a very nice, low mileage Dedra on eBay at the moment. Started at 7500 but down to 4500. Had it been a turbo instead of the 1.8 I suspect it would have been long gone...

I'm a little surprised you aren't taking the back wings off to improve access given you are making such a thorough job of the restoration.

I wouldn't rule out taking the rear wings off , if only to see how simple that is. I've left them on so far as a reference point, to repair the inner wing section where it meets the outer quarter it will indeed be easier with it all out of the way. Once the lower floor sections are done I will look at it again.

Good to know people are following. Not as quick a pace as the Y10 build was, but then I'm back at work full time so this is just my spare time build now, and I'm in no rush.

The inner arch had some rust where a grommet had been, the inner arch is the centre of the 3 layers that form the seam where the door seal fits.
The rot had set into the seam, some on the inner arch too so a hole was cut.

Spot welded plates to the seam, they're actually a bit more fiddly to make that it first appeared as they aren't a 90 deg fold, which upsets the curving. Good enough though, at least the rot is out and new steel in, for that piece anyway!

Some 2pack etch primer will keep it safe for now

I'm still yet to decide about taking the outer quarter off, have got as far as taking the bolts out but I'm loath to disturb the original sealant and bend the flanges to remove it when it's just the bottom few inches of arch.
I may have one to come from the consortium, a door is sorted and there may be a quarter available.
For now I've cut enough away to gain good access to all the rotten inner arch.
Not pretty, like a serious case of rot, but as ever you have to keep cutting back until the metal is good.
And this way I have good access and the alignment of the door and boot etc is kept.

Looks worse than it is, I've made templates of the original piece cut out plus of course I have the removed sections as templates.
Also while I had some etch on the gun I rubbed down the new rear disc backing plates I got and primed them so they can be done in 2pack black. They get a hard life with dirt and water plus heat from the brakes so being painted should help prolong their life.
