Inside the car, not too much rust here either luckily. Bootfloor has been treated by last owner, I'm removing it later to have a look under the black coating.

Started cleaning under the wheel-arches, quite some work, but well worth the effort.

Some welding, sandblasting and grinding done to the b-post / sill join. Spot weld had not cracked, I added two small MiG welds to strengthen it a bit.

Front part of sill is quite a bit corroded. I blasted and acid treated it, but this rust was pretty deep, so I guess it'll come back in a while. Better change the sill next time.

The car seem to have been re-painted before, it had some small bubbles around the windscreen. I sandblasted the while circumference to be sure I got rid of all rust.
