That's interesting Brian. Rodger, hmmm. I still have a 70 Chevy 1 ton Longhorn sitting down by the shop. After it leaped off a jack with me under it and bounced off my rib cage, (it still had all it's tires on or you wouldn't be reading this), I re-named it_____ Christine.

You figure it out.

Got in a portable air compressor. Snap On branded. A bit old tho. Has a 302 Ford engine. 1/2 the engine is the air compressor. Runs on the left bank, compresses air with the right bank of cylinders. Pulls in clean air thru the "intake" side of the special head and pushes the compressed air out thru the exhaust into a storage tank.

At some time in its past. The heads had been removed. Two pistons were replaced and the head gaskets were replaced...installed backwards.. Needless to say the old 302 ran hot. Hot enuff to melt the plastic air lines off, on the compressor side.

Removed the heads, milled flat and rebuilt? the special head with new O-rings and cleaned the leaf/reed valves.

Sorry some pics came thru upside down.

More blog pics-
Old car body repair pic dump: Biscayne repairs- assembly

Old car body repair pic dump: Catalina repairs- L QTR Part 1

I will have to shape the ends of that bead on the '59 job's R trunk drop because I want to just patch the bottom and reverse the flange on top. Thinking of a makeshift press to do that with out of a couple strips of 16 gauge laid on the side perhaps, since one is pointy and the other is round. Anyway I have the quarter bottom rear patch made.

I got out there, mapped off the section to remove on the door and cut the new piece rough and rolled it a bit in the wheel to give it some shape.

It's on it's way.

Starting to take shape, another trip to the band saw for a trim will finish the shape.

OK, thanks for looking, David. BTY, that wheel is for 71-72 Chevelle, not 70.

Today, I got the bottom of the door cut off and the patch set into place. I had to find a way to push the skin down so I ran a piece of tubing across the door, wham done! WHOOO HOOO! I didn't know how I was going to do this.

When I reshaped the bottom of the door shortening the shell when I sectioned it I just couldn't bring the roll up on that skin, I just couldn't do it! So clamping it in place is how I pulled it off. Now doing this patch I had a whole different problem because the bottom was cut off. But this piece of tubing took care of it, right on.

I got a pretty good day in turning my radiator end baffles into metal instead of cardboard. I got so carried away, I never stopped to take a picture.

I will bo better tomorrow. I promise.

Cat pans came in yesterday and I got this far with the left trunk drop before somebody walked up with armloads of sandblasted Biscayne parts for me to fix.
