TrevMk2:-

Okay, I don't want to bore you with the other side repair but I thought you might like to see these pic's, again I'm please I've taken the full length out!

There's no chance you'd bore anyone.
I'd love to see pics and progress you make on the nearside if you have the time :th:

Hi Mr Blue, sorry I don't have the time to help you out mate, after the 2 is finished I start on my 1963 Rover P4's panels.

Hi smiffymr2, I bought them from a local motor factors, but here's the makers web details.

A couple of pic's of the Astra Mk1 sill, I'm using n/s sill on the o/s side of the 2 if that makes sense and vice-versa.

As for the price, you should be able to get them for around £15 each, but I'd ask your motor factors for a price or call Hadrians.

Look's like it's all done! the passenger side is now complete, I'll take some pic's next weekend of the other side. It's taken about 7 days (Saturday's and a couple of days off work) to do this side with all the parts fabricated and ready, painting takes quite a bit of time because of the drying times between coats.
I'll be cleaning and polishing next weekend, the MOT the weekend after, fingers crossed.

:) Hello, just thought I'd show a few pics of the other side, last week I was fitting a new radiator and I had a few problems (all sorted now thanks to forum members) and time ran out for taking pic's of the passenger side last week, so here's a few.

I've also fitted these clear indicator lens's that I got off ebay. Think it looks okay, what do you think?

So the big day came for the MOT,

this is my son, he's more than happy now as he loves going out in her

Image

because she's passed.

Had a few problems with the emissions at the MOT station but Peter Gidden- SBITS put me right with his excellent knowledge of the 2, many thanks mate.

Hi Alex, I'm only too pleased to help out other MR2 owners mate, I've got my notes and PDF's but I'm not sure how I do this, I've tried to put the PDF's on to Photobucket, but it won't let me put them on. Please note that these are just a guide and they are for the sunroof version not the T-bar version that has extra strengthening. If anyone can advise on where/how I'll sort this out asap.
Cheers.
