My car was butternut yellow factory, the green it is now... no idea of the origin. It looks like a gumby green. I am going back with butternut yellow. I think it will stand out in a sea of red, black, etc.

This is what I got now. Just before I really did anything. I primered a couple things and drove it way back then. I was just showing what color the original blue fades to.

I cut those areas out and welded in a patch as well. Didn't get pictures of every step, was in a rush that day. I plan to scrape the undercoating off and blast the inner wheel well to check for anything I might have missed.

I finished welding up that patch on the passenger quarter today. Then my usual coat of duraglass.





More sheet metal repair panels were delivered this week. I'll just keep picking at it until it is all roughed in. I have an optimistic goal of having all of the metal work done by January.
