Taylor - Those of us who have dissected these cars know how much work (very careful work (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif) ) you did to get that panel out... Nice job, good on you.

Today's the day Taylor's harvested parts start paying rewards.

Super In Law is going to get Taylor set up on the small welder and have him weld up the spot weld cutter holes on the braces he removed.

Attached Image

My contribution for today will be the inner fender patch. Should be interesting, lots of curves. Haven't decided how big a piece patch its going to be.

Time to switch from coach to hired gun.

Cut out the destroyed section. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sawzall-smiley.gif)
Attached Image

It takes quite a bit of nip, tuck and cuts to get the patch piece fitted. You what it tight enough for a nice weld. But you need enough room to take it in out 100 times to get it trimmed up. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

In went the new section. After sending Super In Law home head down and back to work. I was bound and determined to get the replacement portion tack in. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

From inside the fender.
Attached Image

Topside shot. Seam along the wall was a bit tough to fit. Back corner cut out was a little over-sized, but the copper backer took care of that. Looks like I cut it back far enough to get good weldable metal. I do have a few impurities coming out from between the layers on the shock mount. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/evilgrin.gif)

Monday the right fender will get a close inspection. No holes per say, but quite a bit of degradation. Might be ok.

Started Labor Day doing my least favorite task, outdoor media blasting. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)
I blasted the lower portion of the front firewall that we'll be using for our patch panel.
Hopefully it made it easier for Taylor to remove the spot welds.
Attached Image

I got the fender patch welded in. I did it from the inside so I wasn't fighting the cowl.
I did a couple test sections of smoothing the weld from the top side. Looks like they finish up real nice.
Attached Image

Taylor did a nice job of removing the trimmed off fender portions and hammered out a wrinkle that we didn't see originally.

Here's a shot of where we're at on Taylor's car . Your looking thru the targa bar down into the front firewall and into the frunk. The panel had to be seperated to be installed.
Attached Image

Everything is kind on hold till I finish up Doug's project and or add another welder to the shop. Super In Law gave Taylor a MIG welding lesson and he's been tuning up the spot weld cutter holes on the parts we're going to put back in the car.

Great looking project!

Yes this was a almost rust free car. Otherwise this would be a parts car.

Ah you forget it was a parts car, a very good parts car at that. With the amazing work going into her she’s looking more everyday like the day will come that she’s reborn as new. Great amazing work you’re going to end up with a very nice car to be proud of.

With Super In Law awaiting his release, its time to get back to work.
Kind of stuck finishing up Mike's transmission swap and engine freshen up.
The mounting stud on the Pertronix was loose so Mike took it home for a JB Weld repair in a heated house.

So it's time to bring Taylor's project out Front and Center. It's a little chilly in the Non-Heated portion of the shop, but I'll push thru it. Cools the tack welds faster, LOL.

Started with grinding and sanding the seam welds. Then onto welding up all the spot weld cutter holes.

Needs a little and dolly work. But turned out pretty good considering where we started.

As long as was there I tuned up the door frame / tub wall.
