One of the previous owners dismantled much of the front of the car - we can not quite see why.... so we welded both the front clip and the left inner fender back in place. They were too good to be thrown away. It felt very good - somehow, it now looks like it will become a car again :-)

With very good help from knechten, the first replacement panel was spot-welded in place. The two thin panels wanted to go everywhere but together, but we managed to get them toghether quite ok. Additional spotwelds will be made next time, but the fit is now as good as it gets...

A lot of air and missing panels was the deal when I bought this car. Although I have been giving it considerably thought whether this could be possible to sort out, it always helps to take one thing at a time.
