Dents found in the roof, and holes punched, so the filler would stick... nice :S

lol, yeah, i was at the garage early this morning, the farmer and his wife are going on holiday in their caravan, so they wanted me to service their car and put a couple of new tyres on it. so i thought i might as well do some work on the delorean whilst i was there Big Grin
also, under the bonnet, its been sprayed with bed/trunk liner, but its scraping off ok to show the origional gloss black Smile

Amazing work-rate fella!

The dents on the top of the door will be hardest to sort out I expect...

I'm sure Chris Nicholson would easily be able to fix he holes in your doors. He's a genius with stainless repairs.

That 'punch holes to make the filler stick' bodge job is criminal.
yeah its the top of the botch jobs ive ever seen :|

i'm pretty good at welding so the holes will be no problem, and some of the dents wont be too bad, but the passenger door roof section is well and truly fooked.

anyone got a door that has a good roof section but wrecked lower half? i could cut the roof section off and weld in a good one Smile

also another hole found Sad top of drivers side rear window Sad oh well.
amazing work there Rob, what a credit to you this car will be when its done.

I've only got a knackered driver's door - full of dents and the top 'a pillar' is
twisted after my car broke free from the ramps one day in a single garage
and rolled down into the door frame with the door up (Martin G will remember
that day in 2003). I'm planning on turning the knackered door into a garden
feature at some point Smile

I got a good S/H door from Dave Howarth back then, it wasn't massively expensive

My NSF wing had a split in it, and Chris Nicholson fixed it by Tig welding in a new
piece of metal then grinding and brushing back, to look at it now you'd never know Smile

outch, i bet you screamed when that happened! :S

the bottom of my door is totally mint, not one dent, its just the roof section, so if i can find one where the lower half has been wrecked, i can use the top half Big Grin
