Words Are Tasty

I managed to finish sanding the major panels.  I didn’t find any new filler, which is nice.

But as I was admiring my work, I noticed the driver’s side rear wing was not right somehow. The entire rear driver’s quarter of the car is “depressed” by 3/4 inch or so. This explains why my test fit of the hardtop wasn’t all that great.

I was able to bring it back close with a little banging using my trusty dead blow hammer Mr. Big. But the rest will take some metal work to cut, straighten and reweld.  I’ll then spend probably 20 hours massaging everything to get the boot lid to fit properly. That’s a couple of weekends.  Then I can actually start on body work.

In my last post, I stated that this wouldn’t take much longer, but would probably end up eating those words. Words are tasty with barbecue sauce…
