10-30-2016 09:08 PM 55 trunk repair 3
The wheel tub is installed, and I noticed the area below the taillight is misaligned. a previous owner installed sections of the quarter panel and must have botched this. So I cut a section and realigned it. Since I'm making a ratty gasser doing this is adequate. I also needed to make a small patch at the top

Look like I'm overdue for some updates. I've just been chipping away at it here and there. These pics show the process of getting the trunk floor cleaned up and the driver side wheel tub installed. I made some flanges so I'd have a place of attaching them to. The compound flanges are for the inside the quarter panel.

06-19-2016 09:00 PM 55 trunk floor repair
So I was able to put in a few hours over this rather warm weekend we've had here in LA, and I have the red forehead to prove it, ha ha (despite my attempt to have my car partly in the garage for some shade). I fitted and welded up the rear trunk/ body support to the rearmost section of the trunk floor, welded that in and rough fitted the trunk floor center section in.

If this were some concourse resto I'd have used a single piece floor, but these parts are cheaper in sections, and, the car is gutted and cut for mini tubs already so I'd be cutting some of a single piece back out which seems wasteful to me.

05-30-2016 08:20 PM 1955 Trunk floor rebuild 1
The tail area and understructure is rotted, so all of that needs to be replaced. I thought I could save the tail end of the trunk floor, but as I got into it I realized it'd be a lot easier to just replace it, and it's on order now. The corners of the trunk walls are rotted, too, and I'm making patch pieces with leftover floor pan material.
