    Hello all! Thought I would start with saying thanks to so many for the posts and pictures I have been researching. Picked this California native up a few months ago and the resto has started. Looking forward to sharing the journey.

    Few picks of the passenger rust repairs. Cut out cleaned and hit with Rustmort, Zinc primer and undercoating. Good news is the crossmember and torsion boxes are solid.

    Nice work, she was pretty nice in the normal rusty areas. Great start keep us posted, mine was far worse in those areas where you just fixed. I'd hang my front fenders and see what the gap looks like. heck put the front end back together

    I have some new body mounts to put in before I weld in the outer rockers and plan to set the fender before I do that. Then once I fix the other side the body is coming of the frame.
