Been so long since any progress updates so thought it was about time to do something...

Chopped out interior body to reveal rotten rollover hoop bottom on passenger side. Cut out rot and made up a fresh mounting. The drivers side is non existent ad will also need doing.

Yo!

Does anyone know if these are still available through a member on here at all? If not I'll have to make some. Began tackling the rotten out sill saga this morning.

Many thanks,
