Did you weld the inner and outer together, or use panel bond? From the factory, they're glued together...

Yeah, I did notice they are glued, but I thought in this case its wiser to just spot weld them together, eventhoug thatīs not full OEM solution :)

Well.. there is no "lip" at original section of the inner arch, so maybe thatīs your answer ;)


Back in to business, Iīve started the rear axle rebuilt:





I dropped the whole beam down as one package, but in these pictures Iīve already released the subframe for cleaning up.



All the dirt and rust removed.



Spred some alcydic paint to subframe and to those supporting plates. I canīt wait to see inspectors face at the MoT ;D


Then it would time to start assemble things back togehter... but I need clean some rust from the underside of the cars chassis as well, looks like only surface rust :)

I also added part codes for original bushes at the end of the vid ;)


Iīve already ordered new gear selector seal for the automatic gearbox, so Iīll be sorting that out soon, at least trying to ;D
