    My new garage is finished enough to use it, well the inside is.
    So I have moved the Cabriolet in.
    Had to push 50meters and then it was all free wheeling diwn hill to the garage.
    Now she can be worked on.
    Here are a few pics of her in the sunshine.
    I also have a much better new camere to play with ,
    so 2 good reasons to play.
    The friend who is going to do the new sills helped me push her,
    and was suorised hew little rust there is.

    Nice,
    Don't see too many of those!! Did they do any structural strengthening on the underside that you've seen? Or is the roof bar it? Be interesting to know the weight of the vehicle!

    Cheers for sharing the pics

    There is a bar between the 2 rear arches,
    Box section tube in the sills,
    The targa roll frane,
    not really sure what else,
    I do have some plans that Andrew gave me but they are not in great reading condition. See below.
    Weight not sure, Andrew may know, also he will probably
    be more informed on the incerts for the strength as he took one apart.
    While the sills are being replaced I will take pics to show the reinforcing work.

    Great info, at least they thought about it and actually put a bit of effort into keeping the rigidity and structural integrity intact, even with the main load bearing panels removed...I.e the roof and main pillars!

    Awesome, gotta love the 5's!
