Life got in the way the last couple weeks but I got a couple hours for it (and plan 2 days free of work next week to work on it!)
What I did in these couple hours:
I know I can buy the B-Pillar from RD but I love a challenge so.. Here we go:


The first steps:




And then it got worse:






And it's starting to take shape:










And it's ready to weld:




Stay tuned, welding it next time and then I will work further on my body frame !

So, I made my body frame to ensure nothing moves during welding:
Every fixation is screwed to be able to remove/reuse all after.
Front:


Back:


Under the gearbox: (pic during tacking, fully welded after)


Engine mount:






And suspension console to have the exact position to put it back after hellhole repair:








And the car is up:




Stay tuned

Antoine

Hi Antoine,
You have done a great job making the car securely tight and tightly secure. Very important for all the surgery you are doing !! Great to watch over your shoulder.
Success and joy!

Thanks a lot for the support!!

So, now that the car is solidly anchored in the frame and we can go forward.
Before starting on the hellhole, I made one last repair on the driver's B-pillar.
The bottom had some holes:




So I built the repair part in two parts as original:


Adjusted:


Tacked in position :


And welded:



Stay tuned, hellhole repair comes next!

Cheers

Antoine

So, before removing the paint on the right rear quarter panel, I was'nt sure how to deal with it while repairing the hellhole. I knew cutting it would allow me a better access but cutting good metal is always a hard decision..
Well, from that point of view I got "lucky" because there is no good metal
Here without paint:




And I have a habit that I built(or make sure I have it) the part before cutting, to ensure I won't miss any measurement/positioning. So here we go !
Making my template :




And starting :




And after a couple hours:








I left the front part undone to be able to make a good door gap when it comes to that time.

So, now that this is done..cutting!


Stay tuned, the work on the hellhole is going to start!

Cheers

Antoine

Antonie. At first, Porsche looked pretty good. I see it's like a colander. Good nerves. Large panels are on the agenda.

Thanks a lot, will be a lot of fun hours for sure

I made some more progress !
I removed the 47 years old fuel lines:




Stainless steel replacement is on its way!

Then I looked further on the outside part of the hellhole..which doesn't look promising:








And after checking a bit inside (quite a lot of layers in this badly repaired jack point..):


There were some findings:


And a lot of rust falling through:


I did not want to fight forming too much thick metals so I made a small order to save me some time:


So..time to cut really into this repair..
But before that, I took a bit of time investing in my future partner in crime..my 5 years old boy already wants to learn how to weld!


Stay tuned

Antoine

Antonie, hard work brings together. Super helper. The world is full of theorists with a big mouth. Creative work is instructive. My boy always went to work with me as punishment for school results and bad friends. I succeeded him in understanding the size of the effort if you want to make something. Today he is graduated and secured. And I'm asking him for advices in this time. Good work.

Your new helper should be great for getting in those tight areas. Great start for him.
