rust nightmares

Hows it going. I'm building a 48 Anglia that everyone told me to junk because it was rotted to death. But ANYTHING can be fixed. I took it one section at a time,not to get overwhelmed. Took me quite a while and plenty of mig wire. But I got it together. Had to make most of the patches, wanted to keep it all steel. I would take it one panel at a time, strip it down to metal, patch the rot and move to the next one. I owned a few TAs over the years, those cars are worth fixing. I am also pretty sure you can get most patch panels for that body. Also check the rear frame rails above the rear. Make sure they are solid. Good luck with your project! Jim
