Antonie, you are making great progress.
Don't you need a complete chassis? Is it the same?
I found it in an ad. Completely repaired - said to be like from Wolfsburg. I can check. Give a message.

Thanks a lot for offering your help and sharing the ad! Sadly, this frame is too recent for it.
I actually need to change the frame-head as mine is twisted but rest of the frame is ok. I found somebody who can lend me a frame-jig so that will be done when I am further with the body :-)

Ok, Only idea. I have a person who repairs similar frames - for Beetle and KDF. I don't know the prices, but the quality seemed good to me - replacement of all pipes and so on.

So, after that I turned my attention to the driver's back side:






Creating a template:




And starting on the part:








After a lot of massaging and finally doing it in 2 parts, it is ready:




I then cut the rear quarter accordingly to check behind:


And repaired the necessary:








And then final adjustment, welding, and this part of the quarter panel is done :












Couple holes/defects also have been fixed:













What a view :

So, I then turned my attention to the front.
This fender was in need of attentions:


So first was to get it to bare metal to check the extend of fixes needed:










The bottom of the back part will be done later when adjusting on the car but for the front part, to win some time I checked which part I had as extra and.. bingo :
This fender was ugly:




But looked like a front part was saveable as it had been badly patched over :


So I removed it:


Cleaned it :




And then it was a matter of ajusting, cutting, welding:




Tacked in place:




Welded:








And primered:








Back part will be done as mentionned when adjusting the front block but it's already looking way better!

Great luck on that one Antoine. When I saw the rust, I was feeling sorry for you. I scrolled down and bam, spare parts.

Thanks a lot
Then stay tuned for the second side, as much rust but no spare parts so I had to build it myself!
