Went to the body shop today to check out progress on the car. Should have it back in a week or two. Picture quality is suspect, it was pouring this morning and I guess the camera lens go wet. Just for the record, it's not a bondo job, new metal has been welded in but mud has been added to smooth things out.
I like seeing stuff like this.. but you should acid dip the entire car !
If you're gonna restore it, might as well do it properly.. This way you get rif of all the corrosian ! I wouldnt want to restore an old classic using body filler !
This is not a bondo job. New metal has been welded into the body, the bondo you see is only to smooth the joints prior to paint. As for acid dipping, yeah that would be ideal but the car didn't have any major rust and will never be a garage queen. I'm fixing the major stuff so I can drive it.
WOW!! 2k with no serious rust! Im probably looking at 10k for sure I guess I have to start looking for some guy to do it on his spare time... Im really anxious to see how yours gonna come out! Good luck
