Default B16a clubman estate Watson frame

Just a few picks from my Dad's a few weeks back. He's decided to have someone paint it for him and motivated by not having that task hanging over him is picking up the pace now

It's got lots of neat touches: Brake and clutch master cylinders bulkhead mounted; in-tank pump; tubbed rear arches; lower dash rail raised to support re-positioned column with 2 UJs; welded inner wing splash guards.

The frame has been modified a fair bit around the CV boots to give extra clearance as they were desperately close.

Always the perfectionist, this is a tig welded bearing insertion tool that he spent days playing with..... After making a motorised turntable so the workpiece moves and he can hold the tig torch in one place.

He's been playing with this car on and off for nearly 20 years with this sort of sidetrack being the main reason.
