so next stage was to make the car a little cleaner ... ( was aiming for a show , but now missed that )

anyway , first was to clean the garage :



done !

then was stripping the mini for re-spray , and what i thought should be a little bit of welding ..



daughter helping to mask up



so thought i was just doing A panels , but turned into inner wings / Door steps and sills , and some floor



passenger side done

then drivers side started , which was worse





so nearly done grinding on drivers side , and will weld up ...

then just door skins to do ! then we can paint.
