Body prep 03.

  Well, I was able to get to the pass quarter this week. I have started on welding in the quarter, Done the bumper lobe, and ready to make the inside skirting in the wheel wells. I am almost done the pass side quarter. Hopefully, I can complete it this weekend.... I will be doing that if the weather holds out. Supposed to rain tomorrow afternoon, and I have a few things to do in the morning. Hopefully, all will be good. below, is pictures and a video of during the week, Including a little bit of last week end.
  I received a couple of messages about how I did the other side, in this piticular area, that I thought it would be fitting to narrate this video so people can better understand how this type of body patching is done. Just apply the method to just about any part of a car's body. So, here is a video with narration of the re-constructing of this part of this 1962 Ford Fairlane's bumper lobe, along with the start of welding in the new quarter pannel.

  Here we are at this date... Car's a bit past 50% done, and this summer's progression has been continuous except for the rain days.... The progression forwards on!. This weekend I finished the wheel well skirting, and today, finished the welding in of the quarter. I also seam sealed the inside wall metal work. Next time, it's Bondo the quarter and the dogleg.
  I will continue of this area when I have a chance. maybe during the week. But, there is a short video of the wheel well repairs. The welding, will be edited during the week. I focused on working on the quarter, and the video and editing will come during the week. So, for now, here is what was done...
