canadian 1000s, finally gettig back to work

Wind the nut back on from the outside of the car and tighten it back up.
 
On the inside face of the bolt there should be some flats cut into the end of the bolt.
use a shifting spaner on those flats and turn the bolt while turing the nut you just put back on both in the same direction as if they were one part.
So you should have a shifting spanner on the inside of the leaf and a spanner on the outside of the leaf.
if looking at them from the outside of the car turn them anticlockwise.
 
Hammering will not work as that bolt is threaded into the car.

Seriously go that original factory blue, You will have the only blu b10 in Canada theres already a red one. 
It will look awesome when its clean lowered and with your wheels of choice.
 
Silver will look crap as its not a bmw, porsche or mercedes you need pastel colours or more oldskool ones to suit it.  If lining is cracked of damaged its easier to just remove it and glue something else later otherwise you can just leave it sheetmetal and later put on your own sponge vinyl in.

Little more paint stripping and sanding. I think A two tone blue with silver on top may look good.

Well I went with the tire idea to get to the bottom of my car.
There is some holes in the rear quarters behind the tires not a lot so that's a plus.



The quarters and rockers.

well this just got alot more complicated.
i have cut out the dash and valance to get to all the rust. only had a small prob as i should of barced it as it did move a little but should be able to sort it out.






 
then played around for a bit. i think it would look decent that low. but not possible atleast with out tones of work

It's tempting to suggest a 2 or even 3" roof chop, but not if they're that rare up in Canada.
 
But it would look sweet... 
 
Incidentally, was it much effort to unstitch the dash panel?
When the "D" hits your eye, like a txt smiley guy...
ya i was thinking that to maybe if i find another ill do a totol custom job. 
 
the dash and valance were so so the hardest part was that vent peice. if u wanted to just remove the dash it is pretty easy 4 cuts and a bunch of drilling out spot welds. if u have the right bit its a snap. putting it back together it a little harder im going to think

Welding I'm getting better.
Fixing the rust on the front pillar I think U would call it. Was spot welded before not it's just welded.

Parts rusted out so made a new one.

Not bad for a hammer an anvil and a grinder.




This side has more rust.

This is me 

 
This is 2 days of snow and freezing rain yuck

Mate forget I mentioned a welding course, you are doing very well, great natural metal work ability for someone with no background doing it, its natural in ya genes. Keep it up you are doing an excellent job congratulations!
 
 I believe once you sort out the rust in those areas, your welding will get top notch and youll be able to do the guards yourself for sure. Keep watchin some youtube vids on welding for tips if you havent using a some good clamps and a piece of alloy or brass behind the pieces your welding helps heaps on removing excess heat.  This is very important to reduce warping or distortion on thin panel sheets by reducing heat saturation. 
 
You are only going to win the way you are going and your car will be awesome.

Thanks my hardest thing I found was getting the setting I burned a lot of holes at first. My confedence has gotten better too. I also started a new job as an auto apprentice and one of the tec was a welding teacher .
Once I get these sides welded up I'll be taking it to get sand blasted
