Replacing the sills and floors in a Spider
The floors of my Spider have been crudely repaired in the past and the remaining original metal is badly rusty. The inner parts of the sills have been replaced by a 100 x 50mm box and the outer replacement members have been lap welded in place. The only members worth keep are the upper door sills. Hence, I'm planning to replace most of the sills and the cabin floors.
I know I'll need to weld in bars across the door opening plus a few more to triangulate across the body to keep it dimensionally stable. And I'll be building a suspension cart to support the body during the work.
I'd appreciate any advice and experience on which parts should be welded in first and the order in which the floor and sill panels should be spot welded together.
