12-02-2012 08:17 PM Passenger door
Rolled the '38 back in the garage.Had already repair the lower drivers door,so I pulled the passenger door off the car,and started to do the repairs on it. Needed to fill the holes left from the old hinges first.with those filled,flipped the door face up and started cutting out the rust on the lower skin.

Being almost 60 degrees today(not bad for December in Indiana),I rolled the '38 out of the garage to sweep up a bit.Also gave me a chance to get a good look at the progress.........

12-02-2012 07:58 PM Fixing the cowl
Now that the front sheet metal is off,I can finally finish the repairs to the lower cowl area where the fenders bolt up.Apparently,when I was younger,I must have been under the impression that the right way to fix a rust hole was to fill it full of duraglass.....
So this time around I cut the bad area out.Made a patch,used weld nuts on the back and welded the whole panel in solid.Also fixed a small area on the inner structure while I was at it.

I built the headers out of a couple of used ones.So I sprayed a little hi-temp paint on them,then wrapped them with header wrap.
