One Step Forward, One Step Back
Last night I finished grinding the welds smooth and moved on to the next big thing. That was just going to be removing the headlight buckets, but sadly turned into a revelation of rust. I’ll let the poor pictures illustrate Ringo’s front end and his additional affliction. Since I’m sick of welding in patches, I’ll fix these with POR-15, Tie-Coat Primer, Epoxy Primer, and epoxy Bondo. I just need to make sure I coat the backsides of these panels. Getting to the backside of the lower valence ones is tough, since the volume is closed off by a plate. Guess I'll just have to cut an opening in the back plate. Guess I'll just leave it open so any water can easily drain out.
