The area under the brake booster on this car was completely rotten so the only way out was to remove all the rust and repair it .

This shaped like this to allow the larger T51 ATe Brake booster to fit.

The front part of the inner fender section was also rotted out ,Possibly because the lower drain holes had blocked with leaves.

Once welded in place the new peice is etch primed and wax shot up into the frame section to protect it against rust in future.
