Default Re: To rebuild or not to rebuild disco on ICU !!!!

Don't be disheartened, use it as a chance to future proof the disco, box section sills aren't difficult to do and very nice job when done, haven't done my boot floor but its due next year it's in bad shape. Think ill get a floor shape folded up and make it match onto the arches and inner quarter panels when I get there.


LONG LIVE THE DISCOS!!!!!!

Just take your time and enjoy it. It's supposed to be a bit of fun, right?
If it stops being fun, down spanners and do something else for a bit.

Don't be a tit like me and try and do the whole lot in 4 weeks. It stops being fun quite quickly if you do that!

hello all
so did a little bit more this afternoon, whilst sorting my order for numerous panels from yrm i thought i clean up the back end of the chassis and see what needs doing,i started by droping the fuel tank after having sprayed all bolts in wd40 every day for over a week i still sheared of the four bolts lol, removed the rear ploughing attachment and attacked the chassis with the wirebrush wheel
ye ye i heard heres the pics

so it looks like i have a bit on the chassis to do as welllol
suggestions are welcome for the chassis crossmember do i cut it out and replace with box section or patch it all round bearing in mind the whole under side of the cross member fell of when i took tank out
thanks for looking
Martin

There's always more to it than what you can see.
Chop all the crap out and see what your left with and make a decision from there. Chances are it'll be a whole new section.
Or, alternatively, I think there's someone on here flogging a disco galvanised chassis for not an awful lot of beer tokens?

Its all doable, but thats a hell of a lot of work. If your welding is OK now, you'll be an artisan by the time you've finished

Really admire you if you do continue, to be honest I'd consider breaking it and getting another with less rot. I'm assuming the mechanicals are all A1? If you have work to do there as well, then its a no brainer to me - walk away - it'll cost a packet to do and take years.
