Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

Wire wheeled 1/4" thick of bondo off of my pass front fender to find the worst body work I've seen. I knew it was bad but not this bad. Instead of cutting the bad part out and patching it, the guy put the patch panel over the fender skin and brazed it on and sloped as much bondo as possible on. I bought a corner patch but the new panel only go's up so far so I will have to cut out part of my old fender and use it on the new(to me) fender with the new patch. When done, i think I'll call it the Franken-fender

Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

Started cleaning my engine up and pulled my intake and exhaust manifolds off to clean and paint and toke apart the carb and cleaned it up, made sure to fix the leak (neadle valve was stuck). Can anyone please tell me how i can know if it's a 261 carb and not a 235. And any info on how all of the oiling systems and vacuum lines work would be greatly appreciated ( I am new to working on sixes)
Thanks.
Nik

The fender rib was all rusted out so I cut out the old part and welded up a new one

Good work looks good. Careful, those darn glass bowl filters tend to leak.

Re: A 15 year old's project. Rusty 62 stepside

Weekend update: got one cab support installed and finished all body work on the $20 fender and put on a thin layer of fibreglass filler and sanded smooth.
Removed all the bondo on the Franken-fender to find out it is very warped and has more rust. I think I'll have to find myself another fender.

Very neat. Mine would look like a broken 2x2.
