What about on top of that box section?

 

 

Ok... I was able to get a mechanic's mirror and inspected the top of both box sections. Solid... thank goodness. (Hard to see in the pics, but I scraped and felt all along it. Just dusty)IMG_8404.thumb.JPG.bfaaa8e0ad8e3b75a2ce76a9eef23626.JPG

 

I'm amazed that BMW would leave that open to the elements like that. Dumb design. I'll probably lay some tar tape along those exposed sections to prevent future problems. 

 

Thanks so so much for the clarification! I'm glad I looked.

That really is clean. I think you have karmann to thank for the crappy design.

It's a horrible design. I'm beginning to understand why there are so few of these that survived. ...and why W&N sells so many different repair pieces. 

 

I'm very appreciate of the guidance y'all have given me. Thanks again.

Ha!  After inspecting the NK yesterday all day and seeing just how many spaces there are that water can drain to and just sit...it's no surprise to me either that all these cars are rusted out.  I know the coupes are even more rust-prone...

Rusty outer rockers cut out. Inner sections are good with only minor areas needing to be strengthened with some gussets. I'll get that sorted out after I get everything wire-wheeled and treated with some rust converter and etching primer.

Fair amount of work ahead, but will keep plugging away.

Id pull those plates out of teh back of the wheel housing and see whats up in there. Mid rocker looks better than mine did.

Are you talking about the mud guards at the back of the front wheel wells?  Yes, I removed those and everything is solid behind them.  Mid rocker has two small areas, one on each side that I will gusset and call good, then I'll treat everything I can get to.

My plates were pin-holed, so I made new ones out of truck mud flaps.

I'd undercoat liberally in there. I would also use seam sealer and good caulking to close any openings for water to get in.

 

Here is a pic of the drain exit in the rear wheel well -  looking forward and down.DSCN8629.thumb.JPG.edc692e980c61b624abcd2467780aad0.JPG

Wow! Nice!

 

I may ask for a few pictures for original placement of a few things.

Been out of town lately, but got back on the CS today. Floor pans first then moving on to the rocker work. 

 

Huge thanks to Barney for all the help.
