0.8mm is a bit on the thin side, especially if you're planning on running coil overs? Im sure most of the original panels are 1.2mm.

Thought I'd stick some pics up of the last tubbing job I did on my estate.

I use a metal stretcher to create a new lip on the quarter and then plug weld it in from the backside.

With the tub I like to run a joggle over the top and pug weld it to the old tub from the inside and to the quarter from the outside.

Mine warped because I started sunday evening and had to drive to work the next day, stop. Filler time!

Also I used a section from a 50gal. steel drum because its the same gauge as the shell 1.3mm IIRC.

It is already curved and you just roll it up, hold in place then let go and it springs to fill the hole and stays in place, you can then just trim and weld.


what an idea... *happy*

Sorry for the thread revival, didn't think it was worth starting a new topic for one question regarding the same subject...
Has anyone ran tubbed arches with no wheel arch extensions? If so does it look ok or is there any pictures floating around?
