Scrapping Continues

Scrapping and cleaning has continued for a third week now, with short breaks due to the weather.  The clean has included a wash down in a petrol & diesel mix

The floor looks very good for a car of 31 yearsNearside floor and sill

The end result is looking good though. The middle section of the floor (ignoring the sills and floor edge) all looks very good for a car of 41 years.  The front end is not so good though. Missing edge on the top of the inside wings, and some rust at the bottom

Offside inner wing is pretty goodFront cross member

The back axle and back of the car has cleaned up nicely too
