Thanks a lot David!

So, next I fixed the clutch tube.
First the part on the firewall, I don't know what a PO was thinking with this thick piece?!




So I removed it and found a damaged firewall:


So removing what is damaged:


Making the patch:


Adjusting:


Welded:


And the front fixation, cut the access :


The issue:


Welded (pic was ongoing, I welded the whole length but forgot to take a picture):


And closed:


Stay tuned

Antoine

So, I think the next step was quite logical..the battery tray
I did built it by hand couple months ago:


So it was time to adjust and weld it, first the bottom part:


And then the top:




All done and all fits great:


I then found one last hole on the firewall:


That I welded close:


And now we have a nice engine bay/right long:




Starting to look good!

Antoine

Antonie, they should send you a medal from Porsche. You should take a picture of the garbage you swept off the floor. That car probably doesn't have a healthy place. It drove somewhere on the beach or in the winter on salty snow.

Good work, of course, but I don't think you expected it to be so bad. The car looked good. It's scary.
I'm sending you medals for bravery .....

And then cut, tack welded:


And then welded:


My door gap is so much better than it was!


Planishing:


And done:






The last missing part was the small bracket at the front of the wheel:




All looking good:


Thanks for following along,

Antoine

It looks like you've done this a few times!

With all the small spots you're uncovering have you considered stripping the whole body and sending it to media blast?
