The last few days have been concerned with removing the offside wheel housing and mudwing.  I found the timber in the wheelarch framing to be in much better condition than the nearside and it looks savable.  Today was spent removing the remains of the steel flitchplates  that join the floor bearer to the wheelarch timbers.   The floor bearer at this location is in fairly rough condition so I will make larger steel reinforcement plates to extend further into the centre of the body.

Other work over the last few days has been applying primer to the ply sections for boot interior lining.
