I have been looking on facebook, people showing their cars recently bought but have never seen advertised for sale.
It is like an inner circle you have to know certain people to get first shot at buying a car.
Is this how it is or am i dreaming ?

After 18 months of on again off again work on the car, I’ve finally got the outer sills replaced. The problems with the right sill were nothing compared with the left side. After trying a few times to match up the sill with the body I found it to be 1/4” long???. In the end I trimmed the “B” pillar section and sat the sill back on the car, this showed the rear of the sill matched up with the rear wheel well and the front was 1/4” forward of the lower”A” pillar. So began the task of cutting down and reshaping. Only then to find the shape from the top to bottom of the inner sill was also out.
After more than a few adjectives and a ratchet strap and vies grips, the sill finally capitulated to a point where it could be welded into place. With a bit more manipulation I got it to a point were I could fit the doors and guard with a reasonable gap. Now to do the fine tuning the fitment and gaps, and then do the same on the other side, thankfully the sill has been done so hopefully it won’t be as bad. Having problems getting into imgur so photo to follow.

 Having sold my parts catalogue, [the 1st 20 yrs], I'm now looking to ID AC Delco rotor button, no. 7424753. I kept the catalogue which includes parts pertaining to the FC Model, [prefix 741etc]. I'm guessing that this is for the red motor, however, may suit later motors?  Appreciate help on this one please.  Kevin.

The U-section between the chassis rail and the inner sill on the left side came next.  I'd had the three replacement sections made for a while, but this was one of those cases where the closer I got everything together, the more work it needed - trimming with the angle grinder in this case.  I started off with a couple of tack welds, then tapped with a hammer here and there, then a few more tack welds, and then I could lay in some seams.

Note to Self: it's much better to attempt welds in cramped surroundings in the morning, when not tired, and when it's not hot and 95% humid.  Must be late January in Sydney.

The door seal retainers at the bottom of the doglegs are next.  I folded a 3/4" piece of 1 mm sheet into a right angle, and began the main bend: hammering one flange while gently forming the curve, all the while "extruding" the section out of the vice.  But then there's a curve in the other plane.  I used the dogleg itself as the form, and got out with the tucking fork to pucker the metal, and hammered it down sort-of flat.  Trim to shape, notch for plug-welds, and -

Driver's side still to go.
