Happy Easter from the guy working on this project.
I worked on the front lower left fender today. What a treat this was.
Made some cardboard templates and then cut my shapes.
Bending the one piece was tricky as I don’t have the proper tools for this so
some pipe of different diameters and a vice helped me shape the curve.


Ha ha just like me older and hopefully wiser,good skills on the safety gear,I admit to being a bit slack @ times and payed the price,last we while I have 2 cut fingers with 1mm cutting wheels decided to wear mig/tig gloves from that point....makes sense.
If your flairs were overlap welded that's not too much of an issue as long as the steel was "keyed up" with a course abrasive and the filler hasn't cracked you should be fine,never been a fan of fillers but if prepped properly generally they are fine.
I understand this was done a while back if still holding up well on the exterior leave it,there's a lot you can do on the inside that's not seen afterall.
Good luck mate (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif) .

What kind of metal etch are you using? I have some areas I would like to apply this to on my car and I have never used an etch applied by hand that converts rust. Please share.

Hey Ben, it was Eastwood “Fast Etch”
Shop personnel explained to me it etches and will
coat the rust with a phosphate. I used it in spray form, I let soak in for around 45 minutes. It then needs to be cleaned off. I used pre paint prep to clean it up. Then I used the frame interior coating.
Cheers, Dion

As near as I can tell, Fast Etch is comparable to Ospho or any other phosphoric acid etcher/converter/protectant. I'm using KleanStrip brand form Home Depot now that Jasco discontinued theirs. Same as Ospho but cheaper.

Looking good Dion! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb3d.gif)

For the Fast Etch brand once it’s cleaned off with acetone or pre paint prep
cleaner it can be primered over.

Yep. I neutralize with water and after it is dry, use a red scotch brite pad to knock off any loose phosphate, then clean and dewax as usual. PPG even has a note in their epoxy primer tech sheet that use of this type of rust converter improves adhesion. Of course, they want to sell you their brand and outrageous prices.

Having never done it this way on my paint jobs prior should this be applied to all bare metal then scotch brite and spray primer?

No worries Ben, and thanks again for the muffler bracket & the straps info!

Plenty more bodywork to be done.

I told Dave I’m gonna have to get the whole car resprayed.
In for a pound in for a penny! The paint job is over 14 years now, it always
had it’s blemishes. Chance to rectify all that.
Maybe have it done by Octeenerfest.....
Dave .... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) Hehehehe

This afternoon repaired the remaining rust issue on the right front fender wheelhouse/longitudinal area. Cut off the offending piece. Made
a new one in as close a profile as I could. Using the workbench vise and a hammer to make the bend. Tacked it in. I’m pleased as to how it came out.
Listening to Ben, Chris, Brent & Dave, I think I’m finally gettIn the hang of this
welding business!
