Re: Sprint 6C build up
Further progress - the rear windows need a bit of metal in-filling to ensure that water drains Out! So one side has been done and needs blending.
Then I wanted to finish the scuttle repairs and needed to take the windscreen wipers out-----so off came the bonnet locking rod, and the fuse box, and the heater block, and the pedal box, and the steering column, I knew the pedal assembly was rusted and floppy now I can see that only two top bolts held it in place!
I presume it just needs an "L" shaped patch.
But I then saw that the steering column is bent???? between the two U/Js --
-- is it supposed to be like that for crash deformation?
---Or should it be straight??
Anyway having cleaned the crud out I could see through under the battery tray - so that came out and the area cleaned, a patch made, welded in, primered, sealed, painted and reassembled.
