Bye Bye Rust, Hello Primer
Well guys and gals I have decided to repair the rust on the quarters of the wagon. I have added a bunch of pics of my repair. It is amazing how something that doesn’t look that bad turns out to be alot more rust once you hit it with the grinder, but then again for this car living it’s life in Ohio and Indiana the rust really isn’t that bad. This car has no rust underneath or any where else besides the quarters. My original intention on the rust repair was just going to be grind out the rust and fiberglass it however once I ground it out I decided I would go ahead and make the necessary patch panels, cut out the rust, weld in the new panels, then fiberglass and fill. Now I don’t know if the car will ever get paint except for the roof, I will candy and flake it and probably use some lace, the rest of the body will most likley just run suede or primer. If I do paint then I will glaze and re block out the work I just finished. Next I plan to just do a little bodywork at a time over the next month or so, shave the door handles and emblems, make a cool cruiser. Remember this is my daily driver so I cannot go all out and not have a car to drive. I posted alot of pics for now, I may later delete some of them that may be overkill. Well that is it for now. I’ll keep you posted. Good night. Thanks for lookin”!!!!!!!!!
