    it was the usual… fix the rips, add metal where it was missing, grind, dress, repeat… both pieces, fix em both, then marry em together!!!   Thanks..

    I had to work on a parkway buff job this morning.. but back on it this after noon.. 😎  working on this rear lower fender repair area….  I’ll have that done soon and move onto the next bad area.. 😎  eventually we run out of bad area’s….

    some pics from today… Inner and outer repair to rear fender and dissected out all of the rust on the front of the wheel well and repaired some inner structure and pin holes etc.. and a bunch of pics of the headlights… These are two OG crappy buckets from out back, with 4mm screws holding them in as stock…  Thats without the seal and without a chrome bezel, which goes over all of it.. I couldn’t find one of those to try… but not worried about that….  Everything looks just as it should.. 😎

    I got that area done yesterday… moving to the front fender area now!!!!! 😎  Hoping next week to have this shell rust repaired and dusted back off… as you can see in some pics… it got sprinkled on one morning… 😎  Doesn’ really matter… they always  need dusted off again, in the new metal area’s, hand prints, anything… I like dusting them off one more time before body work…  what does one do that doesn’t have a blast booth right there at the shop…? 😎

    Pics later Juan!

    John, here just trying to understand what it takes to work on this KG because of your back pain. All I can say is I value your effort and it’s a privilege to see the results.  Enjoy your passion, my Amigo, the results are extraordinary.

    I always heard Ghias were prone to rust! I  guess they were correct! Am I right in thinking that the flat and low areas in the design allow water to sit and do its nasty thing?

    Anyways, Great work JJ! This car will feel great when your done!
