This is going to be a cool project, the owner has a lot of cool idea and plans for this car, He wants RewT to fix the rust and get the car ready for a lot of custom work. Check below for progress pics.

These first group of pics are the removal and redo of the passanger fender apron.

Using the spot welder cutter.

Image

Removing the old piece by piece.
Image

And all removed ready for grinding.
Image

This is the lower battery reinforcement. Didn't come with the replacement panel and nobody is remaking them. So broke out some tools and made my own.
Image

Laying out the lines for the beads I will roll into it.

And now onto the rusty floor repair. I did one side at a time, starting with the front section and then the rear. This is a 6 piece floor repair.

Some before pics of the rusty floors.

And the removal of the old floor.

This is a shot of an area I had to redo that wasn't part of the patch panel, once again had to brake out the tools and make my own.

And here are the finished product shots. all the under metal was coated in a POR15 style paint.Then the floor was prepped with weld through primer then a fill primer. All the underside brackets had to be drilled and cut off, and then cleaned and re-welded to the new floor pan. Then the underside was undercoated.

And the pics of the finished product.
