progress has been held up while i rebuild my Mig welder . But in the meantime I have begun the task of anchoring the cowl to the coupe shell. It involves a lot of fabrication of the various small bits to be welded into the body .Starting with the right A pillar.
more of the W126 A pillar was removed,back to where it was originally welded to the cowl. This will make a cleaner stronger joint.
These will be plug welded then lap welded around the edges.
The last part will involve welded a second peie over the top of the top panel which will connect the inner guard (on the right) to the cowl.
