How far will you get on this car in the next week or so? Ready for paint or at least in primer?

Had time to do anything on Rusty lately?

I see Dooder sent his car off to the shop to see about the broken transmission.

I think I'll have the metal work done this week.  Still some tricky spots though. It's been awhile since I've touched rusty but once this car is done I'll have time.  Didn't know Dean sent his car in, must have gotten worse?

Isn't that pretty hard to fix? Seems like lots of compound curves to deal with....

So, do you have a spare roof to cut parts from or does someone sell patch panels? Weird that it rusted way up there.....

I have a mk1 corner but it's different, though may work.  Otherwise I'll just have to custom make it.  Too bad no one sells just a corner. It became this way due to the roof gutter leaking in the corner but more importantly factory foam soaking up water.

Used bits and pieces and made a corner.  A little bit of prep and it will turn out very nice.

Did you have the piece fabricated before you cut or did you cut and then make it?

I cut out the old and then fabricated to match it, then welded in place with minor tweaking.
