With the shell bolted to our factory Celette jig we removed the inner, middle & outer sills with floor pans. The new sills and been fitted in place with additional stiffening tubes welded between the inner and middle sills. The inner sills were pre-drilled to accept diagonal tubes to the b-post and front firewall to form a similar system as used on Spider-R 007, but without the visible door bar restriction. New a-pillar and b-pillar bottoms were fabricated and installed with new jacking points. The rear chassis legs have been cut short as per Spider-R 007 to allow the new rear floor pans to be modified and dropped down to ensure the tall owner will fit comfortably in the car. The shortened chassis legs will get stiffened back to the hidden cage stiffening.
The rear wings were removed to allow proper repair of the inner rear wheel arch and hood frame tub. With the extent of repair required to the original rear wings visible once blasted and removed, we have elected to fit new original Pininfarina tooling pressed rear wings.
