38 Rear pan

Well the rust has eaten the whole bottom half of my 38 up, under the trunk area. I cut off the remaining eight inches clear across the bottom and cut some new metal and welded it in. It was a bear and still a long way from perfect. It's hard to get the curvature in a horizontal and verticle expanse at the same time. I had to make a couple of relief cuts to get it to reach all the way across the back. Hpefully I'll get it to look a little better before paint. Have a look...This first pic is showing the center already welded into place but not the side.

This last one shows it with a little more broader look at it. I would have taken a pic of it showing the entire back end but it's in the garage and I didn't want to push it outside. It's too hard to get it back in by myself.

Hey 38, I should have sold you my 38 Chrysler Royal. Would have saved you a lot of work. The original owner bpoght gallons of Tremclad when it first came out and coated prety much every hidden part with it. The result is a virtualy rust free car after 66 years of continuous use. The original owner, who I knew, drove the car till he died in 1982. It was his first and only car. Check out the attached photo.

Wow guys. I'm scared to start taking off body panels to reveal whatever has been eating away at my mustang for the past 30 years.

Do you prime it the same day you sand it down, or wait till the whole thing is bare metal? I'm just trying to get an idea of 'when' to do 'what' when it comes time for my turn. Keep it up 32 Special Lookin better.

Prime it as soon as you can after you go down to bare metal. The bare metal will begin rusting almost immediately just from the moisture in the air so you need to protect it pretty quickly.

WOW! Randy. That's a mazing how much alike they look. All the parts except for the chrome piece on the side of the hood look the same. I did get your pm. Had to leave last night. The second oldest boy got a 97 Honda CBR 600 crotch rocket and we had to go pick it up in my truck. Lots of bike riding in my future this summer with the boys. I already have it (rear pan) all welded in and I hate to tear it off. It was the best I could do with the tools I had available. It may not be a perfect rod but I can say I did it myself. Wether it be with pride or with shame.
Would still like to hear your ideas.
