Richard, that drain pipe ended below the sill bottom when new. It was one piece. It rusted away after some time and probably let water flow in the sill chamber. One other drain pipe (in fact it is a hose) leading down from the rear triangular window ended inside the sill from new.
Do not know how much water it filled in the sill back then. The front end of the sill and the rear are both rotten on the same level.
By the way there are two more drain pipes, will show pics later.
Ian, the Touring guys built great cars, but why did they put felt between aluminum fender and wheel housing? Must have been to keep the moisture between alu and steel.
Found some new toys (see pic. 3+4). They are made by a company nearby, I´m very happy owning a German Hammer, or two, or three …
Found myself running around outside the shop in the dark, trying to take photos to catch the atmosphere, too.
