Old school lead work for factory seams that I feel are too deep for plastic filler.

Small amount of plastic filler for final smoothing.

Rusty floors sealed and reinforced

Ready for final block sanding.

Inside doors and interior moldings painted.

Top painted an off white.

Didn't notice this crack until after painting the interior, under the wing vent. Able to do small quick welds and not hurt the visible paint, vent rubber covers about 1/2 inch of top surface.

block sanding revealed a few more low spots, re-prime and block again.

Door and trunk seals glued in and assembled
