There is a bit of work needed on the passenger side inner sill, no where near as bad as the drivers side.

Ha!

I'm eating my own words at the moment.

I'm a self-employed fabricator so the work involved is not beyond my capabilities.

However, after working whatever hours i can to make ends meet it's starting to get to me, coming home and essentially doing what i've been doing all day long.

I'm starting to question whether this is the car for me now, i'm sure the good outweighs the bad but it would be nice to come home, kick my boots off and just have some family time, my son is at that age where he just wants to be out and about doing stuff together.

I'm sure all will be well when it's got another 12 months ticket and i'm sure i'll question what all the fuss was about.

Ouch!

Mine was similar, but you've gone that bit further! At least my front wing was still in one piece.

This is my passenger side, it only shows the rear, there is also a nice hole towards the front as well.

I disagree. It must be better to see the whole lot to begin with.

Imagine how depressed i was to do the drivers side only to find the passenger side was probably worse.  :lol:

There is progress though, but it's slow work.

Inner sill is repaired.
Floor pan is repaired and joined to the new section of inner sill.

Had to cut a bit further into the door shut, you can probably see the picture above where the fibreglass is. I assumed it was covering a previous repair, turned out it actually WAS the repair.  :roll:

I was hoping i could get it all done without going above the level of the sill so all the repairs were out of sight, oh well.
