Yeah the quarters looks shitty up close, the right way would've been to weld it, but that would cost moneys to have done and I don't want to invest money in this... We basically did it by getting rid of the rust and treating it and then puttings new metal in w/ rivets (gay I know but refer to previous comment ) over the quarters and bondoing over them. As you can see the whole quarter was rusted that's why there is bonde going over the whole thing.

It's wavy as shit because after spending a week prepping it for paint I was too lazy/tired to make it good and sand it more, this shit takes more time that you would imagine (esp by an amateur) so yeah. Overall it was a learning project and it went great. To those who are saying it's not great I'm aware but it's a $900 A-B car so it's not really worth the effort to make it perfect. If it does fall apart in the winter it doesn't really matter..

Thansk for the comments
