The Left Hand Side already replaced, with the body work off on the Right Hand Side this will make for easy access to remove the inner wing and headlight. Here you can have a better assessment at the extent of the rust. Before removing any parts take plenty of datum measurements so that the new parts fit without any problems. 1 2


All the spot welds have been drilled , all bolts remove and the inner wing cut from the bulkhead. Then remove the corroded parts or in this instance the whole lot as now it is a MOT failure for any rot within 300mm of a body mount. 3


The bulkhead cleaned up ready to fit the new inner wing. 4


The headlight unit fitted with the inner wing clamped in place, plug weld the previously drilled spot welds, refit the body mount and fit any existing bolts. The primer will need to be ground off to weld the parts in place then then primer will need reapplying before painting. 5 6


The inner wing, battery carrier and headlight unit are seam sealed and primed. 7 8 9 10 11 12

If you don’t need to replace the whole inner wing the same process can be applied by cutting out the rusted area back to clean metal then fit the required part
