I've been told that screwing softwood battens into the sills isn't the way to do it and to read up on the subject.  I found this at a friend's house.

Am I correct in thinking this is a Triumph Herald repair? And they had a separate chassis didn't they so not necessarily a dangerous repair?

MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE

A lot of MK2 Jags still around with chicken wire I am sure, so you start with a Morris 1000, the morph into a Jag, then end up as a green Herald.  Huh? Huh? Quality good old haynes I suspect  Wink

They never used to show the repair the day after with rust breaking through again from the completely rotten panel. Let's hope he was a professional restorer and used genuine Jaguar chicken wire from the factory.

I guess this beats gaffer tape and underseal, once you have mastered this technique the next stage is pop-riveting.

When Chris Bastow (formerly Betacar) did a lot of welding on my last Beta he was of the opinion that some small holes in non structural areas, the rear valance in that case, simply didn't warrant the labour of cutting, welding and grinding.

I know that many would disagree, but I can understand why Frosts, a pretty reputable supplier after all, still have a market for this kind of thing.

That looks a lot like the AA book of the car - I have an old edition like that one - but I've resisted the temptation to use chicken wire on my Flaminia!

For sure there's a place for a "preservation" rather than "restoration".  Better the car stays on the road and looking smart enough you're not embarrassed by it can be a big part of that.
