My plan is to repair some rust on my car and give it a paint job this winter. I dug into my quarter panels the other day, and they're worse than I thought, they were hiding a lot of putty. but nothing I can't handle. At this point I'm in it for the Long haul. Does anyone have any wheel well openings for a 67-68? I'm going to be posting a parts wanted add.

 


 Off topic, but in the one picture, you can see my Weaver long chassis floor jack. That was money well spent

I've been picking away at the rust in my car, slowly but surely. Instead of buying patch panels, i used a metal break and a shrinker/ stretcher tool to make my own patch panels. I think it's coming along pretty well. I did have a slight setback though, I found some rust around my rear window, but no big deal, I'll patch that too

Looking good! Just did the full lower channel on my 65's front windshield. No small task, but I'm glad it's done. Remarkably the rear appears to have no rust...but the glass is still in.

Keep up the good work!

Oh, and some passenger side rust repair, which for some reason was much worse than the drivers side.

Your handywork looks great Mike keep it up. That’s not an easy task I’m looking forward to seeing more as you progress on the project.

Thanks larry, the old girl is coming along really well. It ret is a labor of love. It's been a while, but the more body work I do, the better I'm getting at it.

My trunk lid had a significant amount of rot in it, most of the rust was covered up with spray foam and body filler. After unsuccessfully searching for a replacement, I decided to take a crack at fixing my old trunk lid. I think it turned out pretty good.

Finished product, it's going to take some body filler to make it look right, but I'm pretty happy to have all of the rust cut out.

Be sure you check that under trunk bulb....did it survive the metal work hammering, welding and grinding? LOL!

 Hmmmmm, that's a good question. It probably didn't survive, but then again, that light never worked in the first place. It's probably a good time to replace it. Where is the switch that turns that light on?

 I just looked, apparently there's a mercury switch built into the bulb. How about that.

 Thanks Larry! I don't exactly work fast, I'm pretty slow for that matter. But I do work steady and Ive been making a lot of progress.  Next step, I'm going to cut the windshield out and fix any issues I find there. I have a replacement windshield and backglass on the way

Hello gents, the weather makes it difficult, even with a heated garage. But I've been back at it. I got my old windshield cut out and I found some rust in the windshield channel, which I was expecting. I'll start making patches for that soon enough.IMG_20200128_165120387.jpgIMG_20200128_165107968.jpg
