I managed to work some hours on it this week!

I disassemble my new to me outer suspension console and cleaned/blasted it :




The inside showed only some surface rust :


Except these small holes:




That I welded shut :


I then treated the inside with some rust protection :


And some paint.. won't move anymore !!


Then after 1000 measurements, checking, positioning,....I welded the inner suspension console ! (And the small bracket for the brake line):




And treated the inside of the long with rust protection product and some paint..here again it will probably last longer than me!!




Then it's time to start on the outside :




First I treated the outside part with some rust protection primer (I even diluted some to make it fluid enough to go between the layers..):


And then some rust protection paint (also made it fluid to flow everywhere possible as a first layer, then thick over it)






And time to start adjusting:




Lot of adjustment left but the motivation picture:


Stay tuned
Antoine

Thanks a lot !!!


So, long overdue update!
More adjustments, measurements..and welding here:










And fully welded:






Now adjusting the suspension console :




And all welded including the connecting parts between the consoles:



All measurements are ok and the arm felt right in place:




I can tell you that this view was a real relief !!

But still lots to do, like here with this poor repair:


And behind it some metal put under the rust..




So big cleaning :


Adjusting the bottom part:




And welded:




And the top part:










And welded:




Next update will follow very soon !

Antoine

So...next update!

Before taking care of the bottom of the passenger rear quarter, I thought I will see what I can do with the top part with the holes and dents:






I first planished it roughly with hammer and dollies:


And welded the holes shut. Some smoothing left but already way better:


Then I decided to continue on the firewall..first taking care of this old terrible repair:




I decided to replace this part:


Making a template:


And the patch :






Cut out the wrong repair:


Adjusting:


Welding:


Et voilà:


And in between, I had noticed that the floor was also repaired with metal over rust, what I can't stand so I also fixed that:
How it was:




Starting the shape:






Verifying the fit:




Whole shape:


Test-fitting:


Cutting and adjusting:




And welded:


I did not over-grind it..the weld is under the front part of the firewall and robustness is more important!

Stay tuned, I have more to share!

Antoine

Antonie, beautiful job. The percentage of sheets produced and delivered by you is beginning to equalize the percentage of sheets made by Porsche.

Thanks a lot!!

Some more news..

I created this small hammering form:




Guessing why?


Yes, to build myself the engine sealing surrounds:


And my first try is quite positive:




So I will build the long part!

I also mounted my front sway bar, first making a tool to position precisely the hole:




Thema making the holes:






Modifying inside:


And mounting the sway bar mounts :




Welded back the inside frame:




And everything done:




Stay tuned, work on the driver's side is coming!

Antoine

So, as promised, the work on the driver's side!

After a bit of Paint/gravel protection removal, it wasn't looking promising:




And not much better without the jack point triangle :




So I prepared the floor pan:






And made some cut:




Now I could see the damages better:




So I made a template :


And the part, from cutting to adjusting to welded:










Then some repair on the inner firewall:






And the pan:




And its reinforcement:




And the triangle, no chance to repair the old one so I made a new one:














And that is one side done:


Stay tuned

Antoine
