Haven't been paying too much attention to the body since I cut out the rust in the rear quarter.   I'm looking at the possibility of another move soon so rather than trying to do some plastic surgery I've been concentrating on mechanicals and the broken rotted exhaust.




I'll keep chipping away for now.

Body doesn't look bad at all, far better than the typical MD car... in
the 49 yrs we lived there, we saw plent of rust, far less than upstate
NY though!  I always marvel at all the solid old cars when we
visit daughter out in Denver, it's pretty dry out there, why so many
fires and why this one is so good.  Nice work!

Thanks.  It started life in ND so it's seen some snow but for the most part spent its life dry as a popcorn fart in CO.

Hey Welcome back...Got to look after your family and life first...the cars can wait.  Congrats on getting a little time back in the garage..the patch panel looks great, better then having to pay someone else to do it for you.

So there's a mess of stuff that went wrong the most important is that I learned not to use a flapper wheel when knocking down the welds.  Needless to say I cut the patch out, made a new one, and have now tacked in the new one.

Not much at this point.  If you're referring to the wheels, I picked up a set with tires for less than I could get a single wheel.  Since I had belts showing on one tire, the rest were so badly dry rotted I was afraid to pull it out of the garage anymore.  I figured I couldn't pass it up.  At least I can go around the block without worrying now.  And I figure I can sell for more than what I paid should that time come, these don't have a scratch on 'em.



Or if you're referring to the patch, I was trying to weld up any pin holes and found that the flapper wheel made the patch WAY to thin.    I was burning through in several places.  Rather than make patches for my patch I just cut the whole damned thing out and started from scratch.
