    Note much of an update just been welding welding welding front fenders done and the rear trunk lid.
    Got a little bored of welding and decided to strip all the paint off.

    Made a little progress today had to fix the buggered side of the car and started mocking up the front bumper.

    Had a spare back half of a car so figured I'd add the full filler to the back of the car Just checking for fit and have to build the back half of the rear fender to kick up to the panel yet.

    Nice!! Bumper flows good with the grille opening! I didn't see it listed (maybe I missed it?) What is the front bumper from?

    This is a classic example of what happens when it gets cold in the winter in Canada, and we can't venture outside except to work in the shop. My Pontiac had the same rust around the tops of the windshield. I'm still trying to figure out why the roof would rust there? Keep at 'er. Looks good.

    Two and a half weeks! You could have said two and a half months and I would have been impressed.

    Impressive work, you really do make it look easy. That's dangerous, now I think I could do this. It would take me 2 and a half years, though, to get this far.

  26. Mad cutting and welding skills! That's one of those projects that you have to keep a good head of steam going. Everything (maybe) else is a piece of cake from what you've accomplished.

    Yep, sure is easy.

    I saw it on the internet.

    I'm on my way out to the shed with a camera. I'm gonna chop up my '52 and show you how easy it is to put back together.

    If I'm not back by midnight I might need some help.

    What I really wanted to say is that of all that work you've done, I think the trunk impresses me the most. I've seen lots of guys struggle with that and you had a better idea. One I can use. Thanks.

    The rest of the car is looking great too. Even the section, which I don't normally like.

    Pete
