I finished the trunk pin mounts and got those attached. I had top slice the trunk opening a little more to make room for the fiberglass trunk panel. It' fits Ok. not perfect, but good enough.

more metal shaping, welding, grinding, and repeat to make the car look like a car again.

more pics of the trunk panel area being rebuilt. I also sliced open the trunk channel to make room for the fiberglass trunk lid. at this point it's easier to move the metal than to grind and bondo the fiberglass panel.

12-18-2016 10:50 PM wheel tub flanges 2
overdue for some updates. I finished the flanges on the wheel tubs, and have started on the back end of the car. I needed to add the lower panel that goes below the trunk panel, and fill in some areas as I don't have all the correct replacement sheet metal. Time to get the hammers and dollies out. Also working on mounting the rear bumper and using this to help gauge where that sheet metal goes.
