1969 Buick Skylark.

Post by RewT » 16 Nov 2013, 08:11

Customer wants us to start with fixing the core support/ battery area where it is rusted out. Here are some of the pics.

This is the area, pretty much all rusted out.

And this is from the front.

And when I pulled the cowl to fix the passanger side, I found this rust hole under the inner fender.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.

And here are some of the pics of the finished product.

This first set is a custom patch panel I made for the driver side under the inner fender.

And after grinding and primer.
