what's your plan with your car?
I got a spare rear brace if you want it.

sills look clean, I see a bit of rust in the rear panel lower seam but not too bad.
whats the front like around the turrets under the guards?

Best idea ever the car rotisserie. My Escort is up on one at the moment.


good luck with the project

Hi GTP,

Thanks for the interest this is my second attempt on a swift the spitroast machine I call it is just so easy to do welding and all sorts ie sand blasting undersealing ,
There was a bit of welding around the sills but nothing serious front turrets are solid but the was to rot holes around the seam where the wiring loom goes through the inner arches they all go there,but yes this idea of spinning the car upside down is good.

Good luck with yours to

Mike
