Finished the majority of the welding on the roof (or at least enough for it to keep its strength when lifted). Now I’ll box in the chassis to the floorpan, hopefully giving it quite a bit of structural rigidity in the process :) pics of the welding on the roof after the jump :)
Repaired the leading edge of the roof which was very frilly. Rather than buy a replacement panel for £180 you can pick up OG Mini rear valence for ~£20 which has a load of curved panels that you can chop up and get some complex curves for repair panels :)
Also patched up the sides which looked good on the outside but were very crusty behind the seams.
Lastly, patched up the little sections under the rear quarter windows and boxed it into the bodyshell :)
