Excellent - great to see the repairs coming on.

Also interesting to see how the welder plays havoc with your phone camera... and was your mate welding away without using any form of eye protection???

Yes, it was my crappy 130 amp gas less welder , but Nino said it was quite good. I tried to persuade him to wear my welding helmet but he said hes been welding for 40 years with no trouble, he closes his eyes and opens them in time with the weld. Dont try this at home!!

Unfortunately that inner arch is looking a bit flaky. The driver's side on mine has a thick plate welded right across there joining onto the chassis leg. Nearside however needed just small weld and plenty of wire brushing of surface rust. I found later the reason why the other side was so rotten. The factory seam sealer was missing from where the strut mount joins the inner wing (maybe the robot or person on the factory line ran out of it!)! Result would allow water to collect in between the two. Worth checking this area whilst you're there.

Looks familiar..Next challenge is getting a replacement rear abs sensor. There are loads of front ones but rear ones rare as rocking horse doobies. They are different in resistance. Have a look at my posts. I took a guesstimated gamble on a Fiat one that looked identical and after carrying out the abs ignition steps the abs light went out.

a jaw dropping level of prep; great stuff

total respect for attempting the brake line fabrication 'in house'- are you going to paint them?

I need new bolts for suspension strut to wheel upright.

Is 10.9 tensile strength adequate?

Bought these slightly cheaper on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Fiat-500...;frcectupt=true

Same P/N as the bottom ball joint pinch bolt which is why I ordered them.
