Rotten Inner Wing

Recommended Posts

Alan_M

I've acquired another 205 recently, which needs a little TLC. Having a poke about, it looks like the drivers inner wing requires attention - holes by the jack mount. Can someone tell me how the upper inner wing splits from the upper engine mount please? I was going to cut out the rotten bits, but there is so much of it I may well replace the entire panel.

I was going to replace the panel with this from the dutch boys but it doesn't have the indent for the upper engine mount or am I missing something?

For removing the top engine mount you'll need to take the engine out , then grind off the mount welds down on the chassis rail and also on the top of the mount on the wing  , and then it'll be free to give you space for working/cutting that entire section off .

 

Looks like that fabricated part will need some hammering , nothing especially hard or complicated , this is how the OE replacement panel looks without the mount :

Folks,

 

Similar issue for me. Please see pics. Repair or possibly pattern part from arie at empa (if he even does them)? Which way would you go?

Get a repair panel from empa (arie Pronk ) he definitely does those left side inner wing panels.
