Hi Dennis well the section from the Mini is essentially a 'C' section open at the back so you have to glass it in on both sides front and rear. Issue at the back is getting the fibreglass to hold so you have to let the resin go off abit bef6re applying the mat to improve adhesion. Not sure what you mean about settle.
As a result of looking at your thread have looked at the rear towers on mine and they appear ok no sign of rust or swelling so am going to rebuilt straight on.
I think on the front you should try and obtain a Mini cross beam; I imagine that this item was incorporated into the original shells from general production; Richard Porter is a great source of knowledge - cheers, Neil

Hi Guys

Had some really good progress yesterday. May first point of focus was the LHD aluminium inner arch.




I got it almost off, but it turned out that there was more rivets underneath more fibreglass.




It was a pain getting this aluminium out, who ever repaired this shell, really made a mess of it.


In the process the whole inner wing delaminated, but ohh well new ones will be made anyways.


Allmost there:


Finally out:



Then i focused on getting the cross member structure totally exposed, this also involved a lot of delaminating, hacking and sawing. But got there in the end.






Iam doubting a little if it is original to have styrene foam in here though:

Anyone who knows?

Next up was the beam. Some good progress here, as i have been able to find the correct twin bolt beam ends. A tip for other people who wants to do this. M-machine.co.uk are able to manufacture these items. My plan is to weld them onto the newer style cross member.





Then i focused on removing the galvanised pipes that had been glued into the bulkhead.
When i did this, the whole corner broke of, and this revealed something interesting.


If you look at the twin bolt end pieces, they have some plate on the back forming an angle. Happily this angle corresponds with the end of the GRP bulk head, after the corner broke off.



And upon further investigation, i could see a groove into the bulkhead. This had been almost closed with Resin, but i was able to open it up. This groove corresponds to the other plate on the crossmember end.


Did some test fit, it looks like the center piece of the crossmember will fit.


And i just could not go home, before i had tried on the end piece. It is allmost in position, and i am sure i can get it to fit 100%. This is really an important checkpoint for my project. I am very pleased.



This was todays harvest of GRP crap.


I have a dashboard and the roll cage on the way, so not so long before the GRP repair work can start.

Happy New Year Dennis. Are the 2 holes top & bottom of the end piece for the shock bracket to attach to?

Regards Dave

Henrik and I aquired 7012 from Dennis in 2013.
