Learning Metalwork

I've got the parts car for Rusty and now it's time to do some metalwork. I've had quite the job, I ended up being afraid of the welder for a couple months before getting brave and giving it a shot.

Step 12

There were a number of areas that needed work. What follows is a montage of the body work that got done.

The most obvious, once I removed some Bondo, was a bashed passenger side panel that was also rusted out. Digging further I found the inner sill was also rusted and bashed apart.

The driver side dog leg appeared to have a small rust hole, once I cut it out, I noticed the inner sill was also rusted out. Sigh.

The crack of Doom had appeared in the passenger door.

There was some weird bondo work and a slice on the passenger rocker panel.

The drivers side rocker panel was rusted out in the front corner.
