There was a similar repair needed on the driver side of the firewall as well.



… and after.



We found some extra holes and small spots of corrosion on the radiator core support here and there, so those were repaired as well.

I love seeing all of this intricate metal repair. It really makes you appreciate what goes into a restoration and why it takes the time it does.

This car was in really good shape overall, but there sure were many intricate repairs to perform. We'll keep posting 'em!

The front sheetmetal was reinstalled so we could check the fit. We’re using some new Eddie Motorsport billet hood hinges, and we plan on re-using all the front sheetmetal that came with the car.





Overall, the fit was pretty good, but any issues would be fixed in the next stages of construction.

We welded up some holes in the inner fenders that would not be used.



The trunk floor had some minor corrosion, surface roughness, and pinholes from rust, but it wasn’t bad enough to warrant a complete replacement.



The fix would be to replace the center of the trunk floor with a new section from YearOne.



Adam used a cut-off wheel to cut out the section we wanted to replace. At this point, he left the trunk floor support braces in place.

The old floor piece came out in one large section.





The new YearOne center trunk floor section is a very faithful reproduction on the original floor.



Adam chose to remove the trunk floor supports at this point, and transfer them to the new YearOne floor section outside the car. This would be a quicker approach than having to weld them in under the car.



Then, the new YearOne panel was trimmed to match the size of the hole left in the car.
