Passenger side wing repair

Mk1 Jetta Build – Cut, Weld, Cut, Weld.

Even though I have been out of action for the last two weeks, that does not mean that the work on the Jetta has stopped completely.

Due to the main chunk of work that is needed at the moment being welding the many rusty holes on the car, Adam (my bro-in-law and expert welder) has been cracking on with the work (when he can be motivated to get out in the cold , sorry Adam).

So, Adam has been getting on and working his way from the front of the car to the back. There is a lot of cutting and welding to do on the old girl, and unfortunately for Adam I am after a pretty tidy finish. This means that he is having to cut out any and all rusty areas and neatly create new sections out of either repair panels (that came with the car) or more commonly shaped sheet metal.

I am then tasked with the job of cleaning up the welds so that everything is nice and new looking with minimal filler.

Anyway, here are some pics of the progress (more to come very soon) and a cool time-lapse of Adam cutting and welding the passenger sill.
