Easter Repairs

Thought I'd share a few photos of what I'm up to this easter.

Covered bodywork

Rusty sills

Urgh - body filler

Sidelight/indicator light swap & reflector ilumination

I really do miss Dad's garage while at Uni - one of the best bits of being home (apart from the free food :-D)

Rust went a wee bit deeper than it looked...

so that panel came out too,
Wasn't much left of this one either, hmmm

But replaced it bit by bit:

Haven't any pictures of the headlight mod my little brother did, but those at the Coventry meet have seen a partial demo and it should all be fully working by the next meet. If anyone else fancies winky headlights (yes, you know you do :roll: )

Can you give any details on how you went about the job as i will then stick this in the techy section as a sticky 8)

(i.e. did you make the replacement plate? or buy a sill section? )

I tried to take lots of pictures of what was done, am in the process of writing up an illustrated story of what we did. I still haven't a picture of the finished job, the paint was hardly dry before she were back on the road :shock: :oops:

I'll be including lots of links to miata.net as that's where I stole lots of ideas from. 8)
