It appeared the rear tail pan had some previous crash damage, and we stripped off some paint and body filler to see what was up.







It was obvious that some repairs were made at one time.

We did a little more “exploring” with a D/A sander to strip the wheel arches and check for other rust or damage.

Cutting a hole in the lower cowl box “tulip panel” revealed some pretty scaly rust inside, so we elected to replace the panel.



The original spot welds were drilled and the panel was peeled away from the body.



Both sides required this repair.



Any remaining rust or scale in the cowl was ground out and removed.

A small patch panel was made to repair the thin steel at the bottom of the cowl.





The piece was fully MIG welded in, then the welds ground flush, and 3M seam sealer was applied over a primer.



A coat of black enamel would protect the steel from future corrosion.



The repair panel from Classic Industries.



The new panel was punched with holes, then plug welded in position. The welds were ground and the repair is undetectable.
