Default The end of Metal Work

It looks pretty ugly, but all rot has been removed and all panels replaced with used GM metal, next step is to acid the body panels and sand blast the rest. Sadly I thought I was done, but as you will see in a few pictured down the line I tried shrinking some dents on the roof with some heat and that just turned into a massive oil canning mess

Default Last Min Roof Change

Like I said earlier I destroyed the orig roof. This was a donor roof from a Buick that was a rust free Arizona car. Cant ever match original metal and how it fits.

Default Body Work Complete

These pictures represent a few hundred hours of block sanding and just sanding in general. Panels have been guide coated. Body seams have been seam sealed. Time for edging and chassis black paint now.
