This evening was about finishing up the lower quarter repair. Initially I purchased some additional sheet metal so we could finish this last big repair but it ended up being thinner that what we wanted, so I suggested that we look through the inventory of old body panels that I had in the yard and a fender of the Polara parts car was selected.

A piece was cut out, cleaned up and fitted. With that done the panel was mudded up and smoothed. That repair took up most of the time that was available.

Even though there was a little more time today to wok all that was done was some additional work on the quarter and fitting the left rear door. One of the things that took some time was the patch over the wheel well needed some extra attention.

Things should really start moving now that the rust repair is good as done.

No new work has been done because of a business trip and we’re scheduled to resume on Monday the 1st. Updates should be back on track as well, some computer issues had to be resolved.
