So, little update

I made some trial adjusting and it looks good:




And with the old air channel that will help to position everything right. Of course in the end I will weld my homemade ones!




But before all the welding I will bring it all to bare metal and in primer :wink:

While playing with the front part,I also decided to save the original bumper bracket:














Stay tuned for more

And welded, grinded, along with few other holes above it:




And the same on the other side:
Before:

And After:

So, as I was progressing on the front, I continued with cleaning it to bare metal:

The driver‘s side was a bit damaged:


So I put it back to shape:


Also found as usual some rust issues:


Thought I can go with a small patch:


But as usual, it wasn‘t nice after opening:


So I had to open more until there are only surface rust to see:


A new patch including the indent had to be created:


Checking the indent:


Adjusted:


I will be welding it after replacing the rest behind, when I will be replacing the heater channel. In the mean time I progressed on the back of the ghia, stay tuned for more
