What a great project, thanks for posting the progress I look forward to each posting. One question, what did you use to strip the paint off the door.

Thanks Keith

Hi Keith, thanks for the comments.
Because there are so many layers of paint, I use a heat gun just enough to soften the paint, then a scraper to get the worst off.
I finish off with a stripping disc as in the picture, that one is almost worn out, then an orbital sander.

I got the side rail finished today.
I made it in three sections because it was a bit of an awkward shape.

Then again knocked the tops of the welds off with a flap wheel.

I found some pinholes above the inner inner wing which I need to sort before the door pillar.
It’s worse than the other side that I filled with weld, so I’m going to cut it out and replace it with new steel.

But it didn’t quite work like I wanted, I couldn’t get the small radius’ right (I should’ve learned from the side rail).

I made up two new pieces today and left the lips long so I don’t blow the edges off when welding, then tacked it under the outside edge.

Then I cut out the bad and used a piece of wood behind to absorb the heat. I am conscious of the wiper cable and sound proofing behind.

Everything looks ok, so I welded everything in place, cleaned it up with a flap wheel then a coat of primer. I’ll give it a coat of stopper when I do the bodywork. I didn’t bother with the drain Chanel, I’m not sure it serves any real purpose anyway.

I put the recessed flange in to take the door hinge pillar, ready for tomorrow.

I got the pillar sorted today.

When I took the door off, all but one of the bolts sheared.
Instead of messing about with the old bolt plates, I put some new ones in.

I started by measuring for the hinge pillar between the bolt holes,

Post by bigboy »

Started working on the inner wing today, I was hoping to let the bump stop go as it is but I ended up taking it out.
It has been repaired before and was done ok but I decided to replace it as it was going round the edges. So chopped it out.

Then made a piece to fit and as usual left the lips oversize for trimming later.
Tacked it in place and a check all round.

I welded the upper lip in today, after a last bit of trimming.

I began with a rough pattern.

Some great work going on there. Your fabrication skills are improving all the time :D
Amazing what you can achieve at home by yourself when you put your mind to it isn't it.

As you can see, I’m building up quite a pile of rusty metal under the car.

Next I’ll be working towards the back quarter, after sorting the boxing panel.

Re: 1970 Minor 1000 Rebuild

Post by murrayminor »

Great stuff, I'm watching with interest as I seem to be following the same path with my car.

On the flitch panel you made I noticed you have left the panel straight on the actual wheel arch, I'm not sure if you are aware but the flitch panel need to be dressed back at the bottom to avoid touching the tyre on rough ground.
I have the dimensions etc in the Morris Minor workshop manual I will try take a photo and upload it here.


Regards

Dermot.

The tyre is miles away from that seam though. I left it flat on my own car - partly because you create a mud/rust trap by folding it over.
You'd have to be driving on extremely rough roads and with bigger tyres than mine before that seam gave you and problems ;)

I thought the same as you but thought I would mention it just in case, I'm intending on using my car for car trials etc so I'm going to cut my panels differently incorporating the dressed flange but without the mud trap.

Thanks for the input fellas.

I put a wheel on today to check the radius of the arch.
I haven’t dropped it down straight high enough up the arch, so I’ll alter it later.

I started trimming around the rear quarter/spring hanger areas.

I did consider strengthening the spring hanger, but after a good poke round, it seemed a bit of false economy, the welding is very poor and pulled away by hand as in other places.

So, I started cutting the bad out.
The actual hanger seems ok, so I’m thinking of rebuilding the floor and using it again.

First job today was trimming the wheel arch back.

Then had a look at reusing the spring hanger.
I drilled the spot welds out and took the plate off then gave it a bit of a clean.

It looks ok so I will reuse it.

Next, I made up the side rail out of 1.5mm steel. I got the basic shape then put a slit in it to get the bend.

After a bit of adjusting I cut the excess from the ‘V’ then butt welded it flush.
I used a piece of copper behind the joint, to stop blowing the edges out.

I tacked it in place to check the floor lines but I’m not happy with it, so I’ll take it out tomorrow and have another go.

I finished off by chasing rust looking for clean metal, got fed up, so went in and made some onion bahjies instead.
