Started surgery on the receiver car. Removed the headlight box and the forward part of the inner fender. Lots of metal work to do on the floor corner.

Are you still using your Fein for the cutting? That looks great. Looking forward to seeing how you make out on straightening the boogers. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif)

The Fein works best where I can cut from an exposed edge, and through a single layer. I also reach for a Rigid reciprocating saw, and a cut-off wheel on a grinder.

And progress on the rear, removing the rear panel so I can repair the inner-outer fender seems and get the corners right for the replacement floor section.

Left corner detail. Pretty nasty work done when the original rear panel was replaced.

Back at the front, I am probably done working the floor corner, and got the front panel end mostly back in shape.

And started to dissect the donor clip. All I need now is the inner fender wall and headlight box. I will keep the vertical brace attached at least until I can check the fit.

Bad news is some local rust that will have to be patched before it can all go together.

Here's how the front corner started. I feel pretty good about what I was able to do.

Thanks, everyone.

Donor part down to inner fender, headlight box, and vertical brace. I need to repair some local rust but will wait until I cut and fit the fender wall splice.
