mm :D

Just cut and bend the lip at the impress, or there is a better technique?

Yes,that's about it ,clearly scribe the centre of the seam on Both sides then cut leaving about half an inch of metal to lip,
Then cut the rubbish away and hammer and dolly and flatten the seam/i indentation , then simply form a lip

Well....forgot these as pee bucket was acting up
Image
the bulk of the wing was mint and i really dont want to chop it of even though its the uusual and easy way out so I have cut the klocker and let it in,, im prob going to end up making a couple of handed press plates to make these edges and then make them out of decent steel..............
lots of fixings :D
Image
the rear edge as usual gone so removed it and got in with the blaster and
Image
here the inner arch is welded and now i tack up between the fixings
Image
...
Image
i have also welded it on the underside of the arch
Image
product blasted into the seam
Image
...
Image
....
Image

Image
...
Image
....
Image
....

Well seem to have got well mixed up with the posting order.................
i forgot about the sill closures, to my mind they have to be done as fitting them then completes the sill/floor/side panal as a box structure rather than an open folded assembly. probably semantics but I kind of like the strength it gives this area,
after product have dried and soaked into the seam it gets dosed with Dynax
Image
...
Image
very satisfying stuff :D
Image
first part of closure added as OE
Image
this bit is next
Image
the 2 x 3/4 holes will get blanking grommets in them and allow for further dynax or to assist cable runs etc.
now to find the last 2 picks in the world of peeB
