Looking good, lot of work going on stripping it right back and having it on the rollover jig. The front suspension looks really smart now!

Nice work Adrian - a daunting project indeed, but tackle it one bit at a time and you'll get there :D

I dont think they are... the section next to the radius arm mount is a 3 piece / layer box section... I might still have the photos from when my old car was welded, the welder had to fab his own repair panels

The lower side sills are still available new, but I don't believe the floor pan and chassis rail sections are. In the parts manual the front floor pan is only listed as an entire assembly. I doubt you'll be able to buy entire floor pans.
