Panel metal thicknesses

Post by T25Convert »

Hello all, 

Just sorting out my front jacking points/sill/B post. 

The other day I read a thread that had all the metal thicknesses listed out, but now I can't find it again!

Does anyone happen to know the sill and out rigger thicknesses please? 

Cheers,

Alex

Hi, here's the info, copied from this post: viewtopic.php?p=8252401

Body tinware 1-1.2mm not much difference to work with but the 1.2 is better to weld and work with gives good support when butt welding /letting in.
1.5mm for steps,lip and edge repairs,inner arch repairs (around seat belt anchorages)inside of B posts down to JP.
2mm reinforcement for belt anchorages,out rigger repairs, to vertical support above rear arm mount (need lower rear wing/arch off to get to this ,so you should know what your doing lol.
2,5-3mm replacing top of deformation panel (which lower front panel mounts to )and main chassis repairs
