    Only put in half day on this yesterday. Got in early this morning and finished going over the front end. Welded up the antenna holes. Made sure all welding/grinding is complete.

    All the nooks, crannies, seams came out great. Metal work is done up front!!!44AD0D65-7DC8-4F8B-B59C-4D7123305F89F111AEE8-AD6D-46FA-B46E-E490EF833C774ABAF799-33D7-4E79-B8EC-53DD9B1EB6DB4E9BD18F-02A1-4CA4-98CA-3DFF0E479907E3EC03AF-2EFD-44E1-91A3-80EF14B1A31380CB05E5-6144-472B-B011-3AED3DCE7AF9F60A1A0A-09AC-4C42-9369-203840A9E28ADFEDD7B5-095F-471B-98E5-27FC7A1B6F09

    I was thinking that right rear was a little too far gone to straighten.

    Pass corner needed a good bit of love. Had to do some push, pull, cut, weld, grind, but I got it back into shape.5741C0EE-9D93-453E-BD6D-18FCAD2B1DE1BB1A569D-FA9B-485F-8930-8DA92A0E2088EE6C83C3-BBB5-407E-AF60-BC0F2F30C88D91ACCC72-F912-4AF4-BBB1-C9606F027EB31136DBA6-6403-4E25-8D55-6849FDE2ADAE62B0E587-5524-42ED-8A0F-CB72E64FF70D

    Moved onto cargo doors. Rear hinge area was the worst. Pulled the door with a little help from the hot wrench. 91C508A6-2FAC-4F12-A08D-F44918FFA990

    Got the screw out, but lost the nut plate….😪😪  Nut plate cage must have broken when it was hit in the accident.  I’ll dig into this first thing today.3E2B2124-9A9D-4EB5-A940-4C296B2A097A

    Worked out the damaged in the short side as well as the rear cargo door.B6D1BD45-E00E-4749-9892-A43E8A3D7816BDD283A3-A205-455F-83A7-75B0F6CFC015

    I will have all the little spots worked out today. Hoping our WW order also arrives today so I can finish up metal work. If not onto bodywork where needed.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Pat, you have come up with some pretty inventive ways to pull dents. Admire your work dude!

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Cut open the c-pillar from the backside. Fabed up a nut plate and got it all back together. 2B36B845-6C21-400F-B1A7-E248B7C72F38C61B3463-E060-4359-9190-33E14FBF8068A5873B3B-3068-4521-BD96-4A5C33994C8B07C4AAA3-D81F-4443-8FB7-F91AF3E583BD

    Gaps came out great!!0CCD4D5E-B8BA-4AC2-B457-9C68B295F058FA541E65-17EC-4790-9E13-C2C7E70C88F2

    Smallest cargo floor patch I’ve ever done. 8E16B6B0-12CE-4940-B72C-FFB4CE0D9B46EBA670F4-C4A5-45E8-824B-CBAB72DBB772

    I see you have two engine lids. I felt like the one on the bus required less so I straightened it up and welded the cracks at the hinge mounts.E3A12093-05A9-4047-B30E-97B8A242F0B2C48511BC-995C-491C-9CFE-8B9CA02F9D3BD03E9A49-8ACD-4811-A37C-0393694FC073D0EF643D-5419-4CD1-9638-4920753F32F1

    Also got the gas pedal mount in that arrived today. 9003AAD7-A6B4-4D28-AAAB-53796979D191

    Hatch damage is the last thing to work out I believe.  Were you wanting to leave the stickers on? Paint the dash?12E7B4FB-6AB4-4A34-8C7C-0AD46F2C0F322146D8F6-9D1B-4436-9A31-07CA287FDF2A
