Refresh of crashed Zed

Hi guys

Bought this zed late last year and have been slowly getting it back up st scratch.

Here is where it started




Got a new door and front panel from member Gimpy and started straightening the pillar in order to get the new door on.

Front guard was just to replace no underlying damage.
The sill I left with out panel beating as it was going to get covered up with a skirt.

Panel beating of the rear guard was tricky and not great but i am happy enough with the result.

Any way some shots. Still needs some more detailing with dust and stuff stuck in nooks and crannys but pretty much finished.

Just where the door hinges sit. It was pushed in a bit. Nothing major, windscreen was fine.

Still would have been best to repair the sill, as moisture will seep in eventually and rust it out. But apart from that it certainly looks a lot better, but ya know banged up it had that modern chic rustic industrial look about it lol

Well done on saving a Zed. A lot of people would have bought that and parted it out.

Thanks Rob. didnt think it really deserved to be in rebuild thread.

Not sure Ross. Bought it off a member. Not a zed wing some aftermarket generic one that I thought looked ok. I will throw up a better picture a bit later.
