Default its gettin there

im still workin on her here are my latest bunch of pictures

its getting alot closer but still has alot of work to be done



this panel had a small tear in it and was really strong my puller wouldnt get it to move so i cut it out and im welding over a flat piece of sheet metal






this was the hardest part so far i had to cut out alot of inner supports to get acces to the actually outter layer of metal and hammer and pound it straight its still a little bent but its really close



got to love our house garages

It's coming along like I envisioned.

One question though...

Why are you repairing some of those panels instead of replacing them?

thanks to jayfx4 for the confidence from the start

but yeah i got the hook up on some parts with my grandpa he has been working at body shops and junk yards so he knows people at almost every place in town i mean i got a brand new hood and both fenders for 250 bucks or less and a new tail light and both side mirors for 100

im getting the windshield installed end of this week for 120 as well

its alot of work but im going to school for body work and mechanic work as well so this winter project of mine will give me a little headstart for my spring classes
