Thanks. It's getting there now I've just got to strip the engine and start on that next bit I will keep you guys updated anyway.

Oh and does anyone know if I can purchase a set of bonnet struts as I welded up the holes to bolt the support rod back on lol  :'(

That's pretty much the floor tub done next on the list is the sill.
now I searched hi and low for sills, doner cars would  more than likely end up in a similar condition so that only left me one option, Mazda.
so I had the guy at my local mazda dealer fax me an exploded diagram of the sill arrangement and it didn't look like a full sill to me but to hell with it.
I waited four weeks for it to finally turn up and its no bigger than my two year old and at £150 I was a little gob smacked. :angry5:
but again my pal (who does the sheet steelwork at a jaguar e type restoration company) took the sill and formed four copies from the original. sweet! so back to it. well the second pic shows the old sill and then the two welded together sections that will be my new sill.




i Just want to say I've read the whole thread and wow fair play you have brought back this awesome fc to high standards.  :sign0098:

Just one question regarding the sills, can you still get access to them please buddy? as i may be looking for some in the near future so any help will be really appreciated.

Many thanks,

Kind regards,

Drew.

Sorry mate I wish I could help, my pal who did the sheet metal work on the sills no longer has access to the equipment required.
I’m sure you could do the same as me though and purchase one from Mazda then source a company to roll/shape some longer versions.
