1959 MGA Restoration
I finally got to work on the MGA today. I had been waiting to get a new welder and to get the lift installed. Now I have to make time between the hundreds of other projects I seem to get involved in. So today, I took the time to work on the MGA again.
The first order of business is to install a new rear panel to support the rear door jamb. I already had the part I had bought cut to fit the car. I had to modify the purchased panel since it was not correct based on the one I removed.
I finish fitted the panel and tacked it in. The pliers are holding the panel to one of the body attachment brackets so I can weld the holes I drilled for a type of spot weld.
It took a while, but I got it stitched in.
Here is the inner sill for the driver's side as I tacked it in.
I overlapped it at the lower rear corner for added strength. I hope that does not cause fitment problems.
This is the final result. I still have to grind the front section flat, but the rear section is done.
Next I will attach the outer sills and door jambs.
