    I got on well today.. I welded up the front body mount supports and got one of them fitted in..






    I got both sills welded up.. This took most of the day..


    I had got all the dash back in last week too..


    And the n/s front wing can now go back on.


    Its all starting to come together..

    Not posted any updates for a while, but I have been busy on the disco..
    The second hand 300tdi bumper had to be washed, de-rusted, primed and painted, but I am happy with the result..


    All the welding has been done now (at last). All the exterior panels are back on (but need tidying) except the sill trims. I still have a load of interior panels to put back, plus seat belts.
    I found that the heavy duty tubular front bumper from a 300tdi, that I won on ebay and spent ages doing up, does not fit my 200tdi without hacking off a lot off the front end of my car, so I ended up putting all the old bumper back on.


    I won a set of steel rims and ok ish tyres on ebay for 3.20 (result), and I will be doing them up and sticking them on, as my alloys are two different types.
    Gonna just concentrate on getting the car on the road for now, and work on the small stuff as and when.

    Its now ready for its MOT..
    I am not putting in for MOT yet cos I have been off work for a bit and am worried incase I get a big bill on things it may fail on that I don't know about..

    Here she be all (hopefully) sorted..





    I tried to get some shots of the underneath all painted up, but my camera phone does not have a flash..





    I still need a new front wing for this side, but its ok as it is for now. I will wait until one comes up on ebay or I find one in the scrappers..



    I am really pleased with how the wheels (I won on ebay for 3.20) turned out.. I did not have enough gloss or matt to do the whole lot, so I did a matt inner and a gloss rim.
    The next major job will be to paint the car. I still don't know what colour yet, and I am going to try and get the dents pulled out and the new wing on first.
    It fires up instantly and seems to drive ok, going up and down the drive, but I am still yet (after all this work) to see if its going to be a good car for me or not..

    Great project - respect to you - if it doesn't all come to plan it looks like it might make a good wood gas stove ;-)
