Tried something different on the other side, and used welding rod to try and fill the seams in the body. Sort of works, but very slow. The weld is softer and easier to grind down than pure MIG weld.

So got the passenger side stub of the fender on, and tried to clean off all the old bondo and brazing. But i will have to still weld patches over places that rotted away under the bondo

This project is called "Patches"

At least the trees are blooming, and it might even be spring eventually, but this weekend will be cold and rainy, yet again.

Looks like i might get to weld this weekend. The passenger side is a lot better than the driver's side.

and i scored most of a pickup bed and a hood, 1950-ish Chevy, i think.. For free..

Now i have a bed for this project, which is officially named "Patches."

I need to buy some 1/4 rod to fill the door and body seams

Had to take these back from the gallery, they didn't sell. But they were fun to make, and i guess i will use them for hood ornaments or shift knobs or something.

You just take a big old bolt or a trailer ball, and deposit metal on it with a MIG. Then grind it down. Sort of like a 3-D pencil that deposits steel.

Hope to get back working on cars later this week.

Got an S-10 read end for the 36 Ford, that i paid a deposit on last fall. Looks like it will bolt right up to the Datsun frame with a little bashing.
