Planning on continuing work on this over the weekend? Any comments based on the pictures I've posted.

Looks like your doing a good job to me.

Just keep cutting the rust off, weld new metal in easy money.

Made a little more progress.

Sandblasted off the rust that remained on the interior panels and primed with epoxy primer. Next step is to weld back in the inner structure, then prime again. After that I'll start fitting the outer skins.

Welded the inner structure back in place and primed the backside of the quarter panel patches. They're all cut to fit, but I ran out of welding gas so it will have to wait for another weekend.

Welded in the outer panels this weekend. Progress slow, but definite.
