Not done in the engine bay yet. More fun to be had... :^o :^o ... I think Paul said all of this rear end damage was courtesy of
a farmer dragging this beauty around his farm over the years with a tractor... [-X [-X [-X [-X [-X

Cut out a portion of the pass side batt tray. Smashed everything back into "spec". All went back together nicely.

Dissecting.

Why didn't you put on the whole dog leg it looked like it had rust up closer to the B pillar that you fixed? I'm a believer if there is a little rust there is a lot more hiding behind it? I get if he wanted to keep the OG paint idea but it sucks to have it rust out again my 2 cents
