Well i wanted to get a mint shell so i could just swap my stuff over but tbh my shell isnt that bad looking at my new one if anything i would say mine is slightly better overall just gone in different places but im happy with it ..... il see how it goes swapping stuff over ... then have a realistic look at budget wise what im going to do was thinking of maybe rebuilding my old shell but maybe do a colour change .

yep gotta say your old shell is in far better nick than I thought it was gonna be, weve sold them in worse condition than that for fair money
got to remember there 20 odd years old now Leighton and your not gonna get a truly mint one
and if there was a true mint one then it would be sold as a complete car

is that the new shell or old one?

if the new one then I could not possibly have known that as the sills were all fitted and colour coded, all I could do was point out the bits I could see which I did with photos
this is why I hate selling things like this without people checking for themselves No

never again will I flog anything like that unless people have looked it over Sad

Nothing a few hours with the grinder and welder won't sort out! and since it's under the trim you can lag it with underseal afterwards to stop it coming back, and no one will know, shhhhh! Mine were a bit like that but it's all been sorted now.

Thing is bob unless you take every panel off no-one is going to know what's hidden below, just part and parcel of playing with 20 year.

Bloody hell mate the good old tin worn and having a good feast in there, is it rotten between the holes or is that solid? I found some replacement panels if you want the link or you going to use the force and sheet metal it?

Exactly my point bucky you cant tell until its stripped apart i only took the skirt off as needed to sort out a hole in the inner arch wich is done now ... its no biggy and ive sorted out alot worse than that before .... im going to plate it out as the rest seems ok its only the two holes not sure how good the other side is but will take the skirt off and check while i have the welder out Wink

That's a result only being the 2 holes, least it gives you some practise with the welder. While your checking get the rear bumper off aswell from my recent findings

Sorry to hear that mate Sad ..... it is what it is mate hopefully wont find to much more i will just sort out what it needs and it will be fine the worst bit is trying to match the paint as i have no idea whether its a colour from another car or been mixed up .its definatly pushing me to sort my other shell out with the arches .. once ive swapped the rest over .... im thinking i might spray it white move away from the black .

He's picked up a decent wide arch shell but needs some welding on the floor, but he has a replacement floor so not a big issue. Erm he's being a Dick at the moment and wants to put an r5 engine in just to be different (he wanted a 5, but the fez came up) rather than a zvh/cvh turbo

5 engines are not to bad not exactly reliable lump when pushed .... if i had the choice i would go down the zvh route a good bit of power before you even start plus they arent to bad to work on ....to he fair even the cvh isnt a bad lump one of the first engines i ever rebuilt .

i was just going to say i went all over this car looking for rust (was going to buy the car), and it seemed really solid, i admit i did poke a small hole in the rear (n/s i think it was) inner arch while looking, and it really did seem good, damn shame under the skirts, but i went all over what i could see of the sills and no rust anywhere.
