Thanks man, my patience is definitely growing thin on this thing though lol.
My schedule is pretty open this week so I'm going to try and put in some solid hours after work every day and push through the last of the major patching in hopes that I can get a couple of body guys to come over next week to give me estimates on doing the filler, blocking and paint.

I know, it looked SO solid when I had it...I still regret selling it, just like my 80K E30...

When you finish this, you can do my 1958 Isetta 600... Needs twice the work, but car is half the size!!! Just name your price!

Next I tackled the lower rad support, which was rusty beyond patching. Before I cut it off, just in case, I welded a brace across the frame rails... then sawzall'd away...



The new patch from W&N looks like this...



Unfortunately it's only a skin... no back bits where the rad mounts are...



So I welded on a back plate and cut off and re-used the rad mounts...



Little prime for a good time...

Next up was the fenders. The after market fenders didn't have the best fitment. The driver's side was ok, and after a little bit of muscle I was able to get the fender gap between the door reasonable...




Unfortunately the passenger side fender could not be made to fit properly. This is a picture from a while back before I had stripped the car down...



That gap is gross...





So since the original fender was still in good shape other than the typical rusty bottom, I cut the bad part off...





And then...
