      I was pretty sure she had some secrets. It is kinda funny what some people think is actually a "good" repair.

      Top layer was mud, then strips of metal and very thin tin. Haha

      Hard to believe somebody thought that was "ok". Why couldn't it have been stacks of 100s?

        That looks like the work of Bamma Brown except for the lack of chicken wire :)

          Did you see how thick the filler was on the lock pillar?

          Yeah. I'm surprised somethin hadn't taken root in there.

          I do have a stupid question though. Why did you cut just below the quarter seam at the sail panel instead of cutting the seam itself?

          Just to access the wheel well. I am doing both the tail panels, trunk floor, and drop offs. The quarter will be last so I will remove it at the factory seam when I start to fit the quarter up.

          Yes. I just cut it with my chisel bit for quick access to the wheel wells. I will remove it "correctly" laterz

                    I feel like every car with a little bit of rust has to be hiding all kinds of gremlins underneath. This post only feeds my anal retentiveness. It makes me want to have the entire car disassembles down to the every last spot weld. This post gives me anxiety!!!

                    This is why I only buy and honest car. It shows you exactly what is wrong with it and you know what you're getting into.

                    In 2016 or so I bought a 69 Dart from a member here. I drove from Wisconsin to West Virginia to pick it up. Looked decent online but the seller said "I've never had it on a hoist so I don't know if there are any issues". Left frame rail had a hole in it the size of my arm that you could see from the side of the car. I ended up buying the car like an idiot. After inspection I ended up scraping plans to fix it and sold it. I sold it honestly with all known issues and actually made some money on it. My entire point is that why buy a 6-15k car and have a 2k car under some fluff and buff? I bought a car for a good price and invested my money and time into building something that I know what it is when it's done. Not everyone has that ability but I am lucky to have been a body man and painter since I was 18.
