1972 Monte Carlo metal work.

Post by RewT » 06 Apr 2013, 08:22

This car came to the shop for some rust repair, the rear lower window channel was rusted through and the trunk latch area was rusted through also.

Here is the before pics.

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

Then I moved on the rear.

laying out the cut lines.

No turning back now.

Tacking in the new patch panel, making sure the body lines up straight, lots of fine tuning here.

Welding her into place 1 tack at a time..

And grinding it down, almost ready for some primer then seam sealer.

That is where I am at now, I want to thank Ed for all his help on this one, From drilling spot welds and steading panels so I can get a good straight cut. I really apriciate all your hard work on this one.
I am going to be wraping up this project Monday so the owner can get it back and to the paint shop. He is trying to get the car completely done by the end of the month, I think he's got a lot of work a head of him..

Got a good coat of primer on it, going to let it dry for a while then seam seal it and start putting it all back together in the AM..
