    yeah all the rust will be gone, and the door is just a temp, im making my own
     
  4. I guess I'm a little confused. The repair is started on the driver's side, but then the body gets primed without the repair getting done? I'm not trying to bust your chops or anything but what's going on?

    well as you can see in the background, the garage is currently occupied, so i'm forced to leave my project outside, i dont want the cuts to rust, so that explains the primer. the garage will be open soon, and i can move the project in there. i'm doing everything i can that doesnt involve welding right now, because we've got a welding table with the welder on it, and it cant get past the 55 so it will have to wait until i get the garage. sorry to confuse you :D

    Are you keeping the sedan windshield surround, or are you going to graft on something else?
