12-18-2016 09:54 PM trunk panel area rebuilding
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 09:50 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.

11-20-2016 08:18 PM wheel tub flanges
I had a little time this weekend so I worked on making the flanges to fill in the interior panels against the wheel tubs. These will help it look a little better and add some strength. I also had to add some patch metal to fill in the larger gaps left by the previous owner cutting away too much material.

I built the flanges with 20 gauge metal.

11-06-2016 08:20 PM passenger side tub
This weekend I installed the passenger side tub. This included trimming it to fit, making some flanges from scratch and welding it all up. I also started on making another flange to help clean the edges of the interior to the wheel tub itself. The previous owner removed too much material so I figure this will be quicker/ easier than trying to patch material back in to make it flush, and the looks will be comparable once the car is back together. Though I will be making some patches anyway as there are areas that have so much material removed that my flange would otherwise have gaps if I don't fill them in. at least this way it's a quick n easy patch...

10-30-2016 09:15 PM 55 trunk repair 4
This weekend I rough cut the rear wheel openings out, which makes the car look so much better, imo, and I mocked up a tire out of cardboard and a sharpie. I also started to trim out the passenger side area of the trunk, made some more flanges for mounting the pass side tub and will install that next time I get back to this.
