Looks awesome Daniel,  well worth the effort, and if you are enjoying doing even better,   that is what proper classic car ownership is all about lol.

As for the chassis butchery,  Get some sheet steel, maybe 1mm thicker than the stuff already on there, cut it overlapping the hole about an inch in that shape,  drill for holes in the sheet near each corner,  and weld four nuts on.   have it so it sits on the inside and is held in by four bolts .

Thanks Dan

You may just be able to make out the captive threads welded to the inside. There is a cover plate which bolts from the outside....... it's pretty nasty.

I'd not considered fitting one to the inside.

I can see the reason why it's been done, I'm just annoyed that it was done so poorly.

Thanks for the advice.

Productive weekend:

Turned the garage in to a spray booth and got some colour on the u/s of the tub

Then started on the chassis finish with the textured chassis paint

Paint looked so good that I decided to undo some previously poor work where the black arch finish had been crudely taken to the edge of the arch

Should be folded in, I'll mask the yellow to follow the line and paint the arches later.
