When we left off last week, Mark and his team had systematically stripped the car's back end, including removing the rear skin to correct the results of a rear-end shunt; well, this is how it was looking at the start of the week...
|Rear end back in one piece (sort of)|
|New boot floor and rear valence....|
|....and suspension covers|
Mark has continued the same diligent approach that he started at the back of the car, and is now working his way along the drivers side, starting at the B pillar...
|More rusty panels removed to expose....fresh air!|
While the team are in there, we have also agreed to some further strengthening of the damper mounting points, since received wisdom is that these can shake themselves loose pretty fast. So Grade 8 bolts and nuts, and some further reinforcing of the plates should help slow the impact of the Gobi Desert tracks a little....I hope.
