Picked it up today although it’s still solid, needs more than first thought as always the guy who previously done the filler work was a genius with it

think I’ll start from the back and work forwards, I was going to keep it standard but arches and inners need doing so a bubble arch  mk1 is going to be built 

needs

rear panel, rear wells, arches inc inners, outer sills, complete floor, upper bulkhead, lower bulkhead repairs, inner wings, inner front panel, front panel ,outer wings 

i have everything apart from wells, inner arches, bubble arches, and inner front panel so I can get started soon 

pics to follow

those repairs all need removing so I’m starting at the back and working forward, bubble arches have been ordered from gartrac so will lose the repaired outer rear tub and badly repaired quarters

Definitely a more difficult repair , if somebody has had a go before.

I've  had a bit of that on my Cortina.😬

Yes I’ve seen the cortina but all these cars have had previous repairs of some sort unfortunately but this has had a lot lol

Do I remember right that you had a yellow MK1 as well?

As people have said before, when they were worth not much money, they were just patched up to get though an mot test cheaply.

No one did a proper restoration style , cut out, and let in new steel repair.

So when we attempt to do a nice restoration job, we're met with a load of patch repairs over the top of the original rust, and twice as much work .

Thought I’d have a a quick go at cutting the arch out, I can then replace the inner tub easier

fitted the arch under the quarter as I can then weld to the arch rather than over the quarter which would creat more work to get it to look right
