Re: "Project Orangepeel" 52 A.D

Here is some shots of the inner cab section. I used Eastwood rust encapulator then maid my new patch. Using a hole punch I popped holes around the piece so I could spotweld it in place.

Re: "Project Orangepeel" 52 A.D

these next few shots were of welding all done and the metal finish done. the last pic (real fuzzy sorry!) shows the block off plate over the vents. and the inner panel that needs to be replaced.
