When it's done I will wait till you come home after mids, and do a burnout in your drive way just when your falling asleep....

Glad you finally joined the GL forums Dude!!

I got the gussets almost complete. Just need to cap of the ends. This is 1/8th inch plate formed to the frame horns. (I hope Ricola is happy now )

Well, at some point in this cars life the gasket on the bulk head inspection cover plate must have started leaking because, I found some rust inside it! Also found three strange factory holes on the passenger side frame head (see pic) there are none on the drivers side . These holes didn't help keep water out either. I brushed all the loose rust out and cleaned it out best I could. Had to cut some access points out on the "napoleon hat" to get in there too. The metal is still plenty thick enough though. So, I got out some trusty POR-15 and made some "extended reach" paint brushes, and coated all the rust (the rest of the inside tunnel looks brand new!) It's not the prettiest finish, but it sealed the rust.

Well, its been a year since I posted (and worked) on my rust repairs. So hears what I've done last nite and today.

Lots of work to get this to fit good.




Now the other part is getting this aftermarket panel to fit. None of it matched up to original one, but I'm getting close! Still a few more hours of fitting before welding it in.



I guess I need to have a thread in the "project builds" section...

Yes, you do. We can move this one over though if you'd like.

I have posts all over the place that should be in a "build thread" is there a way we can put them all together? If not, I will just start one there in some kind of order in progress.

Had some time to take care of a stupid mistake I made back in '93. DO NOT USE SPRAYFOAM AS SOUND DEADNER IN YOU CAR!!!! I knew better but did it anyway! I've been dreading removing this stuff! One reason I've not worked on body repairs. I noticed small bubbles forming at the bottom of my drivers side quarter panel, and this is what sprayfoam does over time. I caught it in time before it got the inside structure. The inside of the doors and other quarter were caught in time before I had to cut any metal out luckily.

I got some new metal welded in the drivers side over the weekend! Starting to move forward with this build instead of removing stuff!
