I got the underside (frame where it was notched etc.) and inside of the trunk painted today, I just used a semi-gloss black.... nothing fancy since it's a daily driver. The trunk will eventually be upholstered to match the interior anyway.... I also painted to underside of the roof, insides of the doors, and the floor.

I finally got around to finishing the welding on the trunk and the new drive shaft tunnel. I then primed the welds and put a seam sealer on. The seam sealer can be sanded and painted, which I will hopefully get done tomorrow.

I needed to patch where the old gas door was, I made a piece of sheet metal to fit in the hole as tight as possible, then welded it in place.... making sure I did a little at a time to insure that the metal didn't warp.

Today I figured out how to make the gas door stay open and closed. I used the original spring off the old one and made it work.

Here is how it fits in the hole, now to mark the holes. I did that by spray painting the backside as you can see. Now I need to remove the gas tank again and do some more welding.....
