This area was already patched sloppy It could've been neater.

I can't show every step I take, you can text me if you have a question 267 767 4565

Should be unnoticeable after undercoating.

Great work Matt! Can you imagine the number of "lipstick on a pig" cars that have been sold during the bubble where the "restorers" and owners would never think of finding and eradicating every bit of rust. Have to wonder how many Hagerty 1 cars are rusting from the inside out.

Yeah, good point Shaun.

Zinc in cavities is activated with humidity and will migrate on it's own to protect any uncoated metal. So after weld burn off it unprotecyed spots will be protected any way over time. Porsche engineers learned this in the mid to late 60s. Zinc is very heavy, I wonder how much weight it added to galvanized G series cars. I guess if we look at weights of 74 versus 76 MY cars we could take a guess.

I will advise the owner he use your services Shaun.

I've got all hardware neatly bagged. His bolts look really good but need plating as all do.

I have often wondered how far zinc is willing to travel to sacrifice itself at the alter of white and red rust...

Long day and about 15 sq inches of tub 90% repaired. Ran out of wire.

I went down to visit Mickey356 at one of his restaurants, he had outer rockers he needed to get rid of.

You can see the blaster warped the rear quarters inward so along with all of the uncovered dents I have that to repair.

Put another 65 fun miles on the shop car today😁

Applaud this work for sure - if I didn't have a rust free body I would have given up.

Mickey, it's always a pleasure to hang out. You're a scholar and gentlemen.

I just noticed due to the blasting and how warped inward the quarter is that the shape was way off.

I cut and corrected it to my SWB car bc we need rear bumpers still.

The blaster really over did it.

Tomorrow I'll fill this and the rest with weld.

This area should be leaded. The inside needs to be carefully seam sealed and undercoated so no water can get in.

Lots of work here. Latch panel has some rust and light accident damage but minor.

Passenger side tail and quarter straight and ready for lead solder.

Thank you Matt, I would be proud be a part of one of your restorations.

Ditto Shaun,

Restoration Design's latch panel is a work of art.

I'm going to buy a pinch welder to install it with a factory look.

There's plenty to do to prep for installing it anyway.

There are so many small repairs to make on this car prior to the big panels.

There are also many really sloppy older repairs to remedy.


You have to simply pick one area and start, otherwise you'll get overwhelmed.





What is this mess??

Rear ended, not bad but rust. Rear latch panel needs replacing too to be right. These jobs grow and grow in scope once into. I'm learning this the hard way��

Matt, no doubt you've seen the Real Deal at Fred Simeone's super-duper museum?

Nope, one of his volunteers Joe G., asked I help with Simeone's collection free. (so that's what volunteer means?). Who has that kind of time! My parents know him, not hurting for $.Turned me off seeing how many suckers work for him for free. They're his cars after all, I have my own to maintain. I work cheap sometimes but free is where the line's drawn! Sorry about going off the rails, this always bugged me about the "museum".

Anyway, woke at 5am to fab these as this area was thin and thus weak.

I have a work appointment at 10:30 am to pay the bills.
