Back to the current project

I brought it into the shop and started to tackle a few of it's issues



first thing was to tackle the rust in the trunk













then I fixed the bend in the hood as you can see in this picture it was bent quite bad









I then cleaned up the steering wheel a bit

Wow, nice work! I never new a hood could be straightened like that once it was bent out of shape. Looks like all you need now is a bumper :D

Today the work continued.

here is the completed trunk



and yes those are all the missing rubber strips,



and on to the front bumper, the passenger front frame horn did suffer a bit in this accident, but nothing that a torch and a fork lift couldn't make right

















it still needs a new bumper cover trim and some bumper guards but it's now driveable as is

turned my attention to the vinyl roof, it was very dirty with years of dirt and stains, took some spray nine and scrubbed away









it cleaned up well, but there were some stains that just wouldn't come out, but over all it is in good condition just still a bit dirty looking..... so



















a bit of SEM and the top looks a whole lot better
