Thanks everyone that cleared things up.
Nassi while I was looking at the air punch on ebay I also found an air nibbler this will make things a bit easier to fix my fender.

Cheers

OK, sorry about that. It probably will help somewhere but I tend to use a cutting disc or snips so I cant really help there mate.
Anyway, all tools are usefull at some point so why not?

Took a few pictures under the dash of the cowl and it doesn't look to bad!
Started to strip paint off the roof, seems there are a few coats and it will take a bit of paint stripper to get it clean, the roof channels are reasonablly clean with a little surface rust.

You need to put a camera in the plenum, I suspect the blanking plate is to stop leaks. Pretty lucky not much paint on it. Like

Im with Shaun, or even pull the blanks off to see if it covers rust and get your hands up there for a feel around.

Well most of the paint has been removed, damage is rear tail light panel stuffed, will get Jeremy from Image classics to replace that as its a bit out of my skill set, the right quarter panel looks not bad some small dents will fix, left quarter panel has some damage to it has been bogged up, looks like it has 10kgs of bog, unbelievable, might have to cut out a section and weld in a new piece, have to remove bog and see what I have got the rest of panel OK, boot lid best panel, roof OK had small ripple so filled with small amount of body filler, looks big but spread out to keep feathered with surround, roof channels have some areas of rust, Jeremy will be doing these two sections also.

Bonnet almost stripped, looks clean, but there is a small section where the panel bends really easily, what could be causing that? is the bonnet skin welded to the struts? Will be doing door tomorrow, will apply etch primer then look at fixing the trouble areas, lets hope not much else.
Both fenders not bad, small dents that have shit load of spray putty applied,will remove that and fix. I recon the front end had a prang the fenders don't match.
Anyone have any advise or suggestions, I'm open to anything!!!!!

Are you going to repair the left quarter yourself? If you can do that you will have no trouble with a tail light panel.
