The right front wheel arch.

201 shows sloppy welding

202 the original subframe mounting box has three sides of 2 mm steel. The top is 4 mm steel (two layers of 2mm). The 4th side is the L shaped diafragm of the A pillar which extends a few cm between inner and outer sill. Here the subframe box has two sides of 1 mm steel. The diafragm is partly missing. The side at the front is completely missing. The top is only 2mm.

203 and 204 are pics of a sill repair. The end of the outer sill runs behind the wing and is welded to the diafragm which is also the 4th side of the subframe mounting box.

This sill construction is unique for the Fulvia coupé. Very strong but also the Achilles heel. When driving water collects behing the wing. There is no hole to let the water out. Every coupé comes with a subscription for a sill repair every ten years. The alternative is to drill holes to let water out and wax it with a very good high temperature wax. If the wax melts in the sun it flows to the lowest point which is where you drilled the holes. It clogs the holes. Thus wax which does not melt below 180 degree C and which is not washed away by water.

Same story for the sill construction at the C pillar.
