Not the tidiest of welds but still, had to do this on both sides so fuel lines had to be taken off.

Forgot to take a photo of the welding once tidied up and stone chipped

Make sure you reinstate the drain holes in those cross-members behind the front wheel arches - one of mine had been "repaired" with no drain holes and there was orange water trapped in there, so both sides on mine have been done properly now. Also spray zinc primer in there to cover all the welds, and then spray some cavity wax on top. Check for loose underseal - it can look intact but be trapping water underneath.

I second the advice about the sill covers - I've done mine and you can see the results in my project thread.

Great work and fair play for sticking at it. The car looks nice and clean paintwork etc - you'd never think it was rusty underneath!
