  Okay, after I got home today still daylight, but not enough to continue. I did want to have a look and see just what I need to do to correct the problem. Seems it's not as bad as I thought, but, more Bondo. Seems at this point I have no other choice but plastic... Maybe a roller?. to evenly stretch out the round more?. It's not like it's going to be 10 pounds of the stuff... I can always remove all at this point, and see if I can re-apply... More thinking on this will be done before I proceed. Here's some pictures of the second problem, caused by fixing the first problem of buckeling (too much welding heat in 2 places).

  I was expecting a problem somewhere along the restoration line. I got very far without correcting any problem. This car's restoration just fell into the right places, The car diden't fight at all... I am quite happy of getting this far without problems, and, I think this problem will be solved, some what painlessly.. Time will tell... Till next time everyone. Chow!.

  This weekend got the quarters almost finished. Figured out what was wrong, fixed the problem. But, we are not done this quarter. Almost, but, not done this quarter yet. A little bit more to go. Maybe during the week, or next weekend most likely....

  The problem was there was too much Bondo over and around the welding problem. I figured out, as the solution hit me at work, to sand down to show the first bare metal. This would be the cause of the problem, as it protudes farther than the 1/4's other metal. I will grind down this metal more, not going through, and sand the Bondo, and then apply thin coats, therefore getting the Bondo as straight as the 1/4.

  That seems to be the solution, and we are well on our way to finishing this quarter. Needs a little more work on the Dogleg, and the bumper indent area, but, just additional triming, and apperance applications of Bondo and putty.. So, for this weekend, here are the pictures. Video will follow...

  After sanding down, we find out bare trouble metal. Grind down, not going through, and re Bondo..

  Sanding the re applied Bondo, getting ready for another thin coat, and feathering the edges.

  While the primer is drying, we will work on the dogleg. That also needs building out.

  Now, we apply the body putty. Filling in the tiny gullies, scratches... Smooth...

Comment:
  After the body putty, we primer the area again. Primer helps to locate bad areas. Plus it's primer.

  Today, got home around 6:00pm. Did a little bit. I'm having trouble with the dogleg bottom line. I seem to be having a problem getting the rounded area, just above the line smooth. it's such a small area. Diden't have this problem on the other side. probally because the metal was farther inward. So, when I can, I will get out the stone ball and the flat stone. If I mess it up, I can always put on more plastic and work the new plastic. But, I don't want to do that, it's 98% done on that side!

  This will most likely have to wait until Sunday. I am working Saturday, but also have off on Monday. Thursday is going to be a long day at work... Thursday, I am sure, no car work. I was also working on the next video this evening... After the quarter is find a way to straighten out the trunk rear area. They are slanted down a little. Probally from carrying things and letting them hang out. Bouncing up and down, bending that area down slightly.

  Here we are on page 13 of the "LogBook". We are well on our way now, and it is getting close to fall.
But, the weather is still holding, and as long as it is nice, we will continue on this car's restoration. So,
Here we go, Let's continue and see what we have so far. thats it for this up-date.... See ya next week..... Chow!.

  Finally, this little tiny area is now ready to be painted and worked. Before we do a test color to locate our high or low areas (more or less plastic, if any) we need to finish the inside. This includes: Spring cover, quarter undercoat, Undercoat the wheel wells, and the back side of the pockets. Hopefully, this weekend will produce a finished quarter and then we can move on to other areas. Should go along much faster, at least for this... here's some pictures for ya, and a video.. Chow!.

  We are trying to better define the bottom line and the turn. This is a small place for tools, but we do it.

Comment:
  Using the ball stone to make it nice and matched to the original line.

Comment:
  Using the wire brush again. They are great for smoothing, instead of sanding for areas like this. But, you still have to sand after it's used. So, you need to leave some play room for working the plastic.

Comment:
  Still needs sanding down. For this, use 80 grit, Then, 140 (or so) grit. Smooth it out.

Comment:
  Sometimes for the smaller "spotty" little, tiny dips, or gullies, you need to use your finger for applying the body putty. If you allergic, use oven type gloves. Thicker, and won't crumble under your finger.

Comment:
  Same here, remember to do it quick or the putty will start to 'roll", and look messy.

Comment:
  Now, we are ready for this area to get paint. NOTE: All inside the door jamb must be sanded of course
