More Beetle problems

After Darren called me, I went over to Beetlewerks today to find some more problems he'd found with my car. (Hello Darren if you've found this again.)

Here we can see where the running board has been removed on the passenger side, revealing a hell of a lot of rot, including problems with the bottom of the pillar that holds the door and car together.

And this weird shot is the bottom of my passenger door, which is also shot, but in a different way:

So... more work needs to be done before it can go through it's MOT and get back on the road. I'm kind of at the point now where so much money has gone on it, it's worth spending a bit more to get it finished and up to a very good standard. I just worry that once I get the car back it'll get vandalised again and I'll be back almost to square one.
Richard says to give up mate. But i say - spend the cash then go cruising for those vandals! heh
