Cut what was left of battery tray out and repaired wheel tub, waiting for rear corner repair panel to arrive so I can put that, the battery tray and rear closing panel all on at once so everything lines up perfect, I've cleaned the welds up and you would never know ive repaired it, forgot to take photo once I had, will post more once I've done battery tray etc

Also put engine lid on with new hinge from Ben, I've been wanting to do this for weeks as to me that's one of the most important features of a barndoor I'm well pleased, I'm going to panel the middle up both sides next just waiting for butt welding clamps to arrive
