Riptide Motosport - Cheers, I will be very happy when I finally get back to doing some assembly work.

Bulkhead Repairs - Driver's Side - Exterior Panels:
I cut out large sections of previous repair panels on the outside of the bulkhead as they were simply covering up more rust.

In the end the outside was looking like this.

So I ran some welds along various exposed edges to hold it all together.

Followed by my traditional liberal coating of anti-rust treatment.

This whole area will be covered by the kit's fibreglass bodywork, so I just needed to make sure it was water tight, so out came the filler.

I know it looks a complete mess at this stage, but at least that is all the welding / panel joins covered.
Thankfully after roughly sanding down the filler and putting some primer on it was looking a bit more respectable.

I have decided to leave everything in primer for now until all the repair work is done.
As I am already scraping some of the black paint off as I move the bulkhead around to work on the rest of it.
