Default A Little Progress

We are doing it backwards, I know, but I wanted to do something. So, some rust repair and new base coat/clear coat urethane paint and it is presentable and driver quality. I am happy with it. What do you guys think?

I think that you shouldn't stand behind the car when it is backing out... You also have a back up light out on the right side. Looks great!!

What is backwards, is the fact that I still need to get the frame repaired properly, among other things. Lucille always told me that I would fix all of the things that people don't see first and by then I sometimes lost interest. She told me to make a car pretty first, so this time, I did it her way. So far, so good, I guess.

Paul, the car was going forward, but one of the things that needs to be straightened out, is some minor electrical, such as; the backup light, or sometimes lights on all of the time.

For the record, I would not stand behind a car backing up, even if it looks like I did just that.

There is a section where the control-arms connect to the frame and someone welded Diamond-Plate over it, so it remains a mystery. Eventually, I will have the Diamond-Plate removed and we will see what happened. Is it rust? Is it damage? That remains to be seen. Hopefully it isn't major damage and with skill and good fortune, I am hoping that it will be repaired correctly and safely. I am sure, depending on the extent of damage, that there will be many opinions as to how to repair it.
