Got the trunk floor corner repaired this eve. Got the part fabbed up, don't know why AMC put cutouts in the flange but thought I should duplicate them.



Burned in.

Trunk drop time...... it's going to be patchwork. Think I can finish it up tomorrow.

Lots of rot on the underside.


Replaced front bottom section.


Replaced the top where it meets the trunk floor and sandblasted the solid areas.


Cut out more rot and made a patch.



Made the valance attachment point since there wasn't any.




Checking shape of valance attaching point.




Test fitting height of valance attaching point.

Thanks Andy!

Got it finished finally, probably got eight hours just in this piece.



Need a piece on top that connects to the fold at the rear panel.


Completed and bead blasted. Might do a bit more touch up later.

Wow, that's high praise. Thanks for that! Probably closer to Git-R-Done though. LOL

The outlined area on the trunk drop spot welds to the highlighted fold on the tail pan.




Working the back quarter corner. This area needs some help.



Made a replacement section.




Be careful around sharp metal, lucky it only got my jeans.

That's the difference between restoration shops and production shops.

BTW, RebelMachine, You do have mad metal working skills. I wish I lived close to you , I would be over helping you and trying to convince you to help me.
