    I think he would have made the window aperture somewhat larger to avoid this:

    Haha - my rear bodywork looks just like that! Fortunately the louvre covers the gaping hole, necessary to fit the engine and transaxle support structure.

    Repairs look really good, they look like they have been done with matching gel coat, is the plan to leave the body colour au naturale or paint it?

    I only have 1 with a good body but even that hasn't got a rear valence and both the others have had the rear valance cut up. So just as much work or even more.

    You've got a point mate, although it feels good to have 'rescued' a badly hacked bodyshell.
    Thinking about the basket-case projects that have come up for sale recently, quite a few had significant bits missing from the bulkhead, head or rear light areas.

    They have been repaired in gel-coat, and yes it will be 'au naturale'
    I wasn't sure how the repairs would look - but as a rat-look car, having 'scars' on show is a part of the deal.
