    Nice but did you make it out of that grass? It looks a lil to deep for my K5:haha: . But man from what the pictures show you not to shabby at body work. I need to take time and learn some body work skills myself.

    Byfar, the biggest PITA was actually getting the body panels lined up.. not fixing the massive rust hole on the driverside rear.. I started to mount the fender, and it looked like the door wouldnt fit correctly. I got the door, and mounted it, but the damn thing wouldnt close... it kept hitting on the door shaft thingy. So I had to take it off, put some shims in it, and remount it. Then the gaps were all off... etc.. just a major headache.

    The rust can stay on mine. the sheet metal is just there till it gets torn off.

    that looks really good. nice transformation!
