  After welding in the cuts, grind down the welds, and round the cut bends. It'll look like it's a pressed sheet of metal.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Sand down the hammer marks as good as possible, but leaving meat. These will disapear as the Bondo is applied later.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  More cutting to fit in, and line up the end lines to match.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Weld in the little replacement area. This area had to go. Rusted badly. Easy to replace.

Body prep 03.

  Today was a day off from work. It rained all day... I did get some computer work done. Up dated the cost page, and backed up some AVI files to the backup computer, and to the storage hard drives. It's 6pm, still drizzeling, and the day is shot. So, next time. maybe I will have some decent afternoons this week after work, and I'm not too tired. We shall see.

  Whew!. Allready, man does time fly on by. Lot's of work to this car so far. Just think, How much all of this work would cost me if I was to ship it off to a auto body shop...Last few days have been good. Got a lot done. Now, up to welding in the new 1/4... I am in the progression of doing that. Then, before the plastic, more touch up welding in the wells, and inside the trunk. Plus, make the bolt spacers, and then the cover for the rail. Then, we can prep for the plastic, and primer.... Hoping to finsh up this side this week end, or into the week. Here's what's happened so far...

  Making a paper templet of the rest of the well wall. This will be used for the length of the welding in the rest of the wheel well wall.

  Cutting out the well from the templet. This metal will become part of the wheel well.

Body prep 03.

  Here we are up to finshing the drivers quarter panel. And, up to video 10 on this area. Whew!. Still, more to go on this side quarter. Here's what's left to do on the quarter:

  1. Make the bumper bolt spacers.
  2. Make the rail cover (to complete the trunk)
  3. Seam Sealer around the bottom of the wheel wells.
  4. Seam sealer outside of the pockets.
  5. Undercoat, the inside of the quarter, inside pockets, and as far as I can get inside the wheel wells.
  6. Undercoat under the car in the pocket area.
  7. Primer on the trunk floor, to the rails.

  Still, some more to do to this area. Then, we get to do it again on the other side.... After the other side is finished, I think we will be moving along better. Quite a lot of re-building in the quarters. I also desided to remove and pull out the rear axle. Several reasons. To replace the brake lines, and to prep for painting, and to modify the springs easier. Can get to everything better.

  For the last month and a few weeks, it's all been the drivers quarter, pockets, and the springs. It's raining today, had some nice days in a row. Since it's raining today, I'm updating the web site, and doing some data transferring, for saving the video work on to hard drive to shelf. I am still looking for more hard drives. If your trashing a old computer I can use the hard drive. Please contact me. If your not in the area, I will pay for shipping...

  The welding. A slow process, jumping from point to point to let the area cool. No warping. Warping dosen't look good, and will cause more work.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  I drilled holes in the new quarter seam area. Not going through past the pocket seam. The new quarter will be welded to the pcket through the holes.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Starting the Bondo. This is also a long process. put on and take off, out on and take off. The process goes on.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  Do the complete area. It's easier to work when your working with the complete area. You need to see where the low or high spots are, all around.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  This is the third application. Not a good idea of mixing super amount and applying. You won't make it that far. The Bondo will harden too fast. better to go a little at a time, sand, see (and feel with your palm) where you need to remove or add.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  After the Bondo, is the "Body Putty". This stuff, fills the gualges and deep sanding marks.

Bigger Pic?. Click it.

  This area calls for special handeling. Several applications, plus, shapping as the applications are applied.
