    Been a bit busy last few days, just spent 12 on some metal, as i needed some thinner stuff, to make our repair panels for the rear quarters,

    I ve used for the rest of the car some 16 gauge and it wont shape properly as its too thick.

    Will put some pics up ASAP !

    Been busy last few weeks, but a bit more s been done

    Rear end under construction, we needed to make our own repair panels as none exist







    Repair panel we made for upper rear corner, you can buy lower rear corners ???







    We also needed to make a panel which sits under the rear reflector





    drivers side is turd as well



    Nice 1970 s repair, slotted screws as evidence



    More to come soon
