So...next update!

Before taking care of the bottom of the passenger rear quarter, I thought I will see what I can do with the top part with the holes and dents:






I first planished it roughly with hammer and dollies:


And welded the holes shut. Some smoothing left but already way better:


Then I decided to continue on the firewall..first taking care of this old terrible repair:




I decided to replace this part:


Making a template:


And the patch :






Cut out the wrong repair:


Adjusting:


Welding:


Et voilą:


And in between, I had noticed that the floor was also repaired with metal over rust, what I can't stand so I also fixed that:
How it was:




Starting the shape:






Verifying the fit:




Whole shape:


Test-fitting:


Cutting and adjusting:




And welded:


I did not over-grind it..the weld is under the front part of the firewall and robustness is more important!

Stay tuned, I have more to share!

Antoine
