The car looks real solid!

What is your plan regarding the right rear quarter?
Replace the whole skin, patch it up, or make it as straight as you can then use filler?

I'll replace both skins, door's and rear quarter's. At first I was thinking hammer/leadwork but desided it's not worth spending too much elbow grease as I allready had bought both skins last winter when I made plans for my "restoration". NOS-sheetmetal is out of the question too as I'm not planning to make it "too nice". Just a solid, reliable summertime dailydriver I don't have to worry too much about the car's usage.

Bracket for front bumper was badly damaged from the collision. I had to spend some time hammering it. Came out pretty nice. After a thin layer of weld-through zink spray it's waiting for the coat of epoxy and after that it will be rosette welded back to it's place.




As you can see, frame rail is brazed instead of spot/plugwelded. I'll have to grind brass away and make some plug welding.



Right hand side's seat riser was brazed also to the floor pan. I needed to cut it out. After that I made a patch and welded it in. A little bit of waves from the accident but carpet will hide it...


Cowl needs serious hammering to get it's original shape back. Doesn't matter too much at this point as the firewall will be replaced too as it's too damaged for my aquired taste.

I opened up the cowl this morning. Looking pretty OK to me. Nothing that little bit of hammering, lead/bondo, welding and some paint doesn't fix.







Wiper motor has a date code. Nov. 15th 1966. Car is built on December -66



This might take a little time to repair.

Started trying to straighten the damaged corner of the cowl lid. A lot better I think but still needs a lot of work.

While I'm waiting for the new firewall from U.S. I'm fixing the backside of the dash. As there was only slight surface rust I decided to use wirewheel to clean it. After a lot of noise and dust I sprayed a couple of coats of epoxy. I think that should do it.

As the right hand side's front frame rail was repaired with brazing instead of welding, I decided to grind the brass away to get factory look and plug weld the rail. After plug welding I made a
forgery to make my welds to look like factory spot welds. After painting I think they will look pretty OK.

Roof rail had little bit of actual rust. Underneath the drip rail window frame had pretty bad looking corrosion so I decided to make a patch for corroded area too.



Finished area







Right hand's side frame rail's "wing" was bent and didn't line up anymore so new "wing" was needed. I fabricated it from some metal I had.


After the welding




Finished patch
