Spare tire support is in
My home made transmission tunnel is fitting pretty good to my surprise
Enough grinding for one day
Very nice work John. You have that all fitting together nicely. Impressive!
Thank you, can't wait to get some bondo on here to hide my welds
Flipped her around today and started the other side of the tunnel
Dropping that side panel to make it even with the aftermarket tail light panel
Hmmm don't fit
Had a photo made and hung in the shop for some inspiration
Focused today on plugging the unwanted holes in the firewall.
I am sooo tired of welding and grinding so I laid down some fiberglass today
I didn't want to use wood like the factory did in the spare tire hat channel so I bought one of those real dense plastic cutting boards to cut and use
GO Man GO!...i love watching the progress...gives me inspiration!
How to fill a hole..... insert steel rod, weld, cut flush, grind
Just going to start going around 1 corner at a time, fixing welds, bondo glass then bondo
Some progress today, using bondo glass for the rough spots then plain filler to clean it up
That looks great.
Go man go! You're making great progress!
Most epic build thread ever!
You are doing what I should be doing but keep putting off. Tedious body stuff. Good work.
How I fixed the after market tail light panel being shorter than side panel
The side panel was a bit wavy probably from all the welding so out with the fiberglass......what a pain to sand
I usually grind the first coat with a flexy disk.
