    Yup... I work in IT so I am able to work from home pretty easily. Combine that with a senior management team that are bored senseless as a result of the lockdown, and it's very easy to get buried in more work than you would have otherwise.

    Some more progress...

    Finished welding in and grinding back a patch:

    Complete with some primer:

    Marked out some steel:

    Then chopped it up:

    I did three of these in total, then ran them through the bender and welded them end to end.
    The end result is too long to easily take a photo of, but it should be welded to the side of the frame rail in due course.

    Cleaned up the rear of the thing - removed what remained of the rear gutter and marked out the bit I need to cut out and patch:

    I ground off the rust in the good areas and gave them a shot of primer, but it was too dark to get a good photo.

    The next task is the back corner. A bit rusty...

    I'll have to fabricate and weld in a temporary support for the roof frame before I chop that lot out.

    Time to do something about the rear right corner of this thing...

    Welded in some temporary support struts:
    temporarysupports.jpg

    Removed the rusted bit of the existing support, removed the remains of the gutter and marked out the intended path of the body saw:

    Marked out the cut on the rear:
    problem-circled.jpg

    A few moments with the body saw... no more rust, but some big holes to patch:
    rear-rustectomy.jpg
    side-rustectomy.jpg

    Test fitted the gutter I fabricated earlier:

    Needs to be another 250mm longer, but looks like it'll work.
