so now I'm thinking maybe I should just strip the front end and fit a new splash panel, 2 new wings and de rust/rot the other inner wing whilst I'm about it - incidentally I was quoted £350 to sort this current rot out.

[Car_Restoration] 205 Gr Project Car
Posted 05 August 2015 - 03:24 PM
I didn't really go mad with it - it all pretty much fell out - it seems there is good metal within easy reach so it shouldn't be too much of an issue to sort it out
Ive been digging around looking for the correct paint colour for the car - P3JZ which appears to be Regency/Andalou. Before the weather turns its getting a spray - time to start prepping the paint - such fun

Does anybody else have a rust issue on both sides of the sill just forward of the fuel tank?
There is a V type section that on both my 205's is quite heavily rusted - I'm concerned that it may be an MOT failure and also what other horror is hiding under the fuel tank!
I'm sort of thinking it might be worth taking the tanks out but I've no experience and have no idea how long a job ii is to do - can any one advise further?
I can probably afford to have the car off the road for a week at most
