Drilling Lh floor panel

31.5 + 1.5 = 33hrs

this one was easier – well not easier, but like lots of things in life, was easier the second time.

Drilled and filed the odd shape in the panel to get a nice flat and panel.

Something I did note was that the transmission hoop has clearly been rubbed over the chassis life, the powder coat has rubbed off and I have some surface rust 😦

Quite disappointed about that, especialy as I know I hadnt done the damage myself 😦 nothing that can’t be fixed I suppose, and I needed to touch a few bits up anyway.

    Hi Andy, tip I got from the owners forum was that Hammerite smooth Satin is an exact match for the powder coating. I have picked up a few scrapes along the way and the Hammerite covers them up nicely.

      Ditto, glad we are on the same page!
      Most of it is just a little scratch here or there.

      As you may have read, I was a little miffed when i saw my transmission hoop had acquired a proper scrape, so much so it was down to bare metal and there was some surface rust 😦
      Not what I wanted to find (especially when I hadnt caused this!), but I’m sure some rust inhibitor will sort it, it’s only very surface.
