Inferno 182 cup , tidy up 😃

Well just bought this Christmas eve and hoping to tidy it up slightly over the next few months for summer. As these are getting slightly rarer hoping I can enjoy it in the summers . While being a good investment at the same time.
Currently on 103k pretty original apart from the usual exhaust and induction kit. Along with the better looking turini wheels😁

First job was , check the usual inner sills for corrosion. So stripped off the rear quarter panels to check these 🤞

I think there as good as I hoped they would be . Time for some rust converter and liberal amounts of waxoil , should help. Especially now that it will never be used in the winter again.

Also removed the drivers side skirt as someone has bent over the front jacking point slightly. Fortunately the rest of the jacking points are perfect. Looks as if it will square up ok and sill isn't damaged thankfully.

Only have a picture of the rear of the sill will get more of the jacking point. Just seems to be the double skinned part that's bent over.

I'm thinking of using stainless bolts to hold sill covers back on for ease of removing them. ( for cleaning etc)
Any suggestions or ideas welcome , or do I just rivet them back on?

I used rivnuts on mine, loads easier than messing around with rivets!

The holes in the skirts accept 5mm fittings. I just bought some dome headed bolts for Allen key along with nylok nuts (both stainless). There are x5 holes on each side of the car.

Great idea for removing on a yearly basis to check every year for any corrosion and give a good clean out and wax protection.

Oh and I'm using nylon washers to spread the load when tightening to avoid bending the plastic side skirts...

Not the one I thought it was, was going to give you some background! Good luck with the project.

More progress today , used a Milwaukee m12 drill with a wire attachment. Found the drill was the perfect size for the job. Both sides cleaned up very well also used the Milwaukee m18 Hoover was ideal for cleaning up after 😎

Decided I best clean out the drain holes as they were both blocked . A quick poke with welding wire and blow out with air nozzle 👌

Finally finished off with 2 coats of Bilt Hydrate 80 rust converter , leaving it till tomorrow for waxoil / cavity wax .
Drilled off all the side skirt mounts to allow me to treat around the holes and allow me to spray in through them at the same time .
