that's it not 100% done but getting much closer !

When it came to doing the back like your doing right now I also removed the inside panel makes it easier to seal when you put it back together .. yet again all very ruff at the mooo

started working on the left door today , a bit of rust but not too scary. more important the electric window is operating just fine. connected it to a battery and it went up and down, and up and down...woohoo!!

Nice work ! Not got to the doors yet on mine  Undecided      .. I would advise using fiberglass or body filler on some of the worlds as you will probs allow water into the car.. that or it will just just again.  Rust primer and paint only does so much   .....

hello there, a little update. I have been working on the car less consistent lately. the welding is getting boring and frustrating, especially the upside down welding;

anyways. I redid the rear left inner fender. the car really starts to look like frankenstein

I also made a new back panel. the original was too rusted and no longer usable. I am quite satisfied so far by this job. look for yourself

Good work.. though I find welding 100000 times better then rubbing down body filer which I can imagine u might be needing some...
