More previous repairs
N/S Arch cut half way
Both pieces prepped and shaped

The b post looked a little sussed further up so we decided to cut it off and replace.
Inner arch cut out as it was too badly damaged and rotten
New piece welded in
New lower arch welded in and joined to a new return lip
Joined to the new inner arch
Seat belt mount looked a little soft but turned out to be the top skin
6 - 11hr days spent metal bashing, shrinking, welding chiseling , filing etc to get the shell damage free!
Wheel arch way out
New wheel arch bashed into shape of the original
The one part that was straight!
All seams and welded repairs blasted
Shell Phosphated, keyed, Baked, Epoxied and baked again
Front pillar pulled forward for better door gaps
Front welded to achieve better gaps

Cracks found and dug out
Pop top textured and painted with silver white and matted down to 70% gloss
Interesting stamp inside the tailgate 3rd 1967
