The bare steel was all cleaned and prepped, then sprayed with Axalta epoxy primer to keep it from corroding in the future.



The new quarter panel is clamped, fitted, and welded like the driver side was.













Next, the Detroit Speed rear shock absorber cross-member was installed into the rear floor.

Next, the rear deck filler panel was addressed. The old one had lots of rust around the window area, so it was carefully removed by drilling out the spot welds.



Here, the new deck filler panel and deck lid are installed. The fit was checked repeatedly before the panel was welded in place.

Next, the roof skin was removed.



Overall, the sub-structure was in good shape, but numerous small rust repairs were completed.





Once the structure was repaired and cleaned, it was sprayed with epoxy.





The attaching edges of the new Classic Industries roof skin were stripped of e-coat primer, and it was clamped in place for fitting.

Kevin, thanks for taking the time and continuing this thread.

One question...are the drip rails spot welded to the roof structure? It looks that way in the pics. Just drill them out and replace as you do any other panel?

Looking forward to more. Thanks again.

Ken
