  10. My MK1 needs a lot of replacement panels and i want to do it correctly from the off. I have no intentions of rallying the car but want to do all the strengthening now in case i or someone else wants to in the future. The first thing is a new floor pan and possibly chassis rails, do we 1 inch stitch them or 100% weld and what strengthening should i do at this stage. Appreciate any help Thanks
