    Knocked up a patch panel for the pass side outer rear rocker.BD98E9AD-BC7C-48C5-B97C-7C91A6A221A6AD4576E6-17C3-4A23-A50C-21997174B5F6

    Abracadabra!39794F48-F72A-458F-9380-C4DD861147EE

    Patch panel and miscellaneous pinhole welding done on passenger rear pan area.

    Coat of seam sealer top and bottom to cover any misc pinholes or areas that I knew better than try and weld.92C536FC-33DA-4054-AC4D-A066D99CEE9CD00D21E1-6B92-464D-B78D-F85567F0A3803BA7B31B-6C5A-40B0-9CFE-C9E9646D6FC7C2842E22-A775-4088-A9FA-83B94DE96C1C

    I feel like there’s only one more area that needs attention, that’s the rear driver fender well/seat back/body tub area.

    I could easily put my finger through the worst spots.F9BCE8C3-53E9-4E82-8851-2349F76AEE2FA7CD6CEA-8EF7-43A7-8CF7-711C3741C164A447FAFD-F417-4AAE-A5D1-DBEFF4636F86

    We will build it if it comes.

    It’s my daughter’s ride. So it will be left stock, nothing fancy, not lowered etc. Probably get a good cleaning, buffing, new top, engine rebuild etc as her funds can afford

    If it were for me, yes I would lower it with wheels.
