Thanks a lot guys for the support!!

So, I did more parts restoration:
Starting with the front and back hood fixations. Here the before/after Pictures:











And








And also:










I also restored the back license plate lights :




Glass was on the wrong side so they even damaged the flat area:


So disassembly and taking care of the two broken screws here removed with welded nuts and then remaking their fixation :








And then blasting, primer, paint :














And the assembly:








(Screws are just temporary one, the right one will come on final assembly !)

So, finally some metal shaping to show

My rear apron was heavily bent so I first moved it a bit back in shape by hand :


Here some better view (and on the part to replace due to rust too !):




And after some massaging and hammering, still some finishing to do but the shape is back and we are almost dent-free:


Then I took care of the surrounding of the engine, where normally the fixation for the sealing should be..old metal left, lots of bends,..






And after some grinding of the unwanted metal pieces and a lot of small hammering:




We are now good to go!

I also started on the battery tray/engine surrounding, here the preparation of the patches:






So after some more adjustments/checkings, I started to make some space:








Adjusting the first piece:




And TIG -welded :


And adjusting the next one:




Welding next time, was already late in the night..

Thanks for following, good to be back at it!

Antoine

So, some metalshaping now

I was still in the engine bay, so let's continue, adjusting my handmade panel:


And welding:


Next one:


Welding :




Looking better, some planishing left but love seeing the next rust-free area:








Stay tuned,
Antoine

So, then it was time to work my way to the heater channel replacement!

First, some wook working:


And the body is up in the air:


Then getting close to the pan for checking of the heater channel adjustment:


Pan getting high:


And all fits really well as it should:








So I screwed the pan in position:




And welded the heater channel to the Body:


Starting first with couple of weld and then re checking everything, including also with the outside rocker, the door, the front wing,..couple pictures on the way:
















Then I made enough welds in order for the heater to now really be connected to the body. Then I will remove the pan and finish all welding (like to the heater tube of the body) with a better access 😉

But before that, I worked my way on the A-pillar:
Ready for it:


Adjusting:


Welding:


Grinding:


Done:






Only thing left is this connection to the front wing, it is adjusted:




But will be finally welded when 100% adjusted with the front wing in place.

Stay tuned

Antoine
