Time to revisit one of the first repairs I did. I have been hiding this ugly from all of you for a while - but here it is.


I have a couple of those spots hiding behind my rotisserie mounts too. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

But the paint is already on. I admire your persistence. Truly good work

Couple of pinholes and I have to trim the side to fit, other than that I am VERY happy how this turned out.

Wow! And I have the same screw driver. Reflected glory. Unfortunately the rear is where the cars get hit a lot. Your car is fortunate.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I am either getting lucky or I am getting better.

Anyways. I was looking at the rear corners of the inner rear trunk. On the drivers side, there is a crease that almost looks factory. On the passenger side it does not have the same crease. It is a small thing and I wouldnt really worry about it - but I have access now.

The car always looked high on the passenger side rear even though the height from the rear jacking donuts were even from side to side. What do you all think. I am adding a pic from Cairo's car, you can clearly see this rear corner does not have the crease.

I cut out the patches I put in and am starting over. found more rust and had to patch the bumper mount portion. Don't have a drill bit bit enough for the hole and my holesaws are too big. I will get to that later. Passenger side is done, driver side is next.

Looks good.
When you're reattaching that panel, don't forget to test fit the rear bumper and check that the curvature matches before you weld it in solid.

Coming along well Travis.

A little metal work was needed along the bottom edge, it wants to flip outward. Getting closer though.

Thanks for the updates. Time, time, time, it all takes time.

Oh, and you are most certainly getting better.

Thanks TDSkip!

Next up is fixing that door gap, they got the panel on all screwy. Its all brazed on and the went a little short so the gap is wide. Door closes great though! Anyways I got the bottom section fixed up and now moving onto the top side. I should have cut the whole thing out to make it easier. Oh well. Picturs later
