06-21-2010 12:05 AM fender patching
a little more patching and finally a "fun" project (actually, it's all been fun so far)- building some frame ties.

I patched the rust spot on my pass fender and I smoothed out the cowl panel to rid the wiper arm protrusions in the metal. Instead of just chopping and patching, I did my best to shrink what metal was there and make smaller patches. It was good metal forming practice, imo. I also built some frame ties out of some 2x3 stock. This evening I rolled the car over to my neighbor's house who will do the heavy welding.

Just some pics of the passenger rocker panel I'm currently rebuilding. All this was hand bent to fit. no metal brake available. I'll be working on more of this over the weekend.

This part is rusted out also. so, I rebuilt it by forming my own patch using recycled metal from the old passenger door skin.
