What Lurks Beneath

I spent another couple of hours stripping panels yesterday. The good news is the rear right quarter is looking great. There was a layer of bog down the bottom but it was just covering dents and creases with no penetrating holes. The panelbeater was able to pull/beat it back to the correct shape so now it is straight with a very minimal film of filler to get it perfect.

The bad news is the right rear quarter has some nasty rust/repairs at the bottom. The bog was thick here, I’ll have to post a pic of the brick of bog that I removed. There is no saving this bit of metal so I have ordered a patch panel from Highwood Alfa. It’s great that these patches are now available for the sedan and not just the coupe and a good price. Adrian has also filled in my aerial hole and cut the rust out of the A pillar.
