The Home Stretch III

Well, I thought I had crossed the metalwork finish line... and I suppose I have, in a way.  But this car is the gift that keeps on giving.

I made a patch and closed up the sill.  I think it came out pretty well!

That makes all the holes that shouldn't be there go away.

But then I nicked the edge of the driver's front fender with the sander, and saw... more Bondo.  So of course I had to investigate.

I mean, come on, man.

What HAPPENED to this car?

At least the metal is all there and I'm not fighting rust.  I ought to be able to get most of this out with a hammer and dolly, and my handy dent puller.  But it won't be what I hoped for.  If I can get this down to 1/8" of filler in places, I guess I can be okay with that.  It's better than the 1/2" divot by the door.
