The other side isn't as nice as first thought either, and there's a hole at the bottom of the driver side where the front guard bolts on, and a peppering of small holes in the rear beaver panel and bottom of the radiator support. The boot floor is also a bit scaly on both sides. Oh, and there are a couple of small holes in the under side of the plenum. Does that make you feel a little better?
Removed the steering column and remaining wiring etc from under the dash last night. Its so much easier to get in there when the car is sideways on the rotisserie! Bonus is that it doesn't want to lean to the driver side as much any more since the weight is now a bit more even.
Decided I wanted to do something a bit more interesting today, so I started on the right rear flare. (Thanks again to Ruts for his guide!)
The flares I have are obviously cheapies, and I tried placing them in a few different positions, but I just couldn't get it right due to the twist, particularly on the door piece. They have also been trimmed back a long way at the outer edges which doesn't help. However, I remembered the flares that used to be on my hatch - they are L34 design but one piece, and they are obviously a lot better made and shaped. So, despite being a bit broken, they make an excellent template:
The new ones don't follow the lines exactly, but after tracing around the one piece flare it was much easier to get them in a good position:
Still some tweaking required to the flares themselves and some minor bracketry to hold them in the correct spot, but I'm quite happy with the placement now.
Now that I know where the flare is going to go, I made a quick plan on what to cut:
