    Good job Ian. Didn't sell it I see, common sense prevailed I've not managed to free up time for a local meet. Now the daily is back with another engine hopefully I can.

    Looks good. I think the membership is now £15/yr as it just left my paypal account last week. Worth every penny, if not for the banter on here alone

    That is special......excellent.....I guess you have left off the axle pivot to align that with another piece of fabrication work onto this? Do you have the other side to line it up with? We did these one at a time on my LX to keep the axle as straight as possible (by keeping 1 reference point on the car). Also my dad made a spacer for it to allow fitment without using a heavy axle to check.

    Ironically Kelvin, the rust holes in the footwells let this water out, so welding them up shows the issue.

    Kelvin, I have no idea on cost (as I've done mine with my dads help), but it may be worse than it looks. I would get the green sound deadening off in that area. Heat gun and a scrapper. Then you can see how bad the top layer is (as rust hides under the hideous green stuff - I would recommend getting it all off). The other issue is that there are 3 layers of steel in the foot well front, so it will depend on how its put back. Thicker plate of less layers or 3 layers original (which also depends on how far the rust is). No help but it might be more work than first glance. Removing the green stuff will reduce the cost (as this can take a while). My final concern is that the curved section on the left looks very orange.....and may also need a plate. Both areas on my white LX had this.
