Yeah I have a few holes on that side so I went ahead and bought the coplete patch instead  of fill the holes with mass bondo, I hope these pics do justice

This is watch the quick fix looked like and I was not happy with it. I got both panels for about 80 dollars and that is on my doorstep. Thierry I don't need to figure out how to get my photo in the pics side I will just keep putting them here,lol. I am hoping that the bondo that I am putiing in this car will look right when I am done. I know it cannot look worse, but I would hate to do all of this for nothing.

 Yes, the bondo won't last long if it's placed to fill holes but if they are small like it seems to be on the driver side it might be easier to weld a small patch of metal. Make sure your body work looks good once you prime the car if it doesn't, the final paint won't hide it.
 About the picture gallery it's not more complicated to upload photos than it is here.
 The only thing you have to do is to create an album, once this is done you can upload as many photos as you want and it will be easier to find them all in a single album than doing a search for them in the forum  :D

No I really have tried I made my album uploaded the pics, and it said that it was download and to click continue to finish, and when I did the next screen said done at the bottom left but it was blank.

As far as the metal I think I will be okay once I get that area done, and Paint wont be on her for a while, so I will make sure it looks good, no hurry what so ever.

 I tried to upload a new photo and it worked fine. Did you receive any message?
It's possible your photos are too big so I changed the size limit but if that was the problem, the site should have told you.
 Here is the steps:
1. Create / order my albums
2. Upload file
3. Enter file info and select the album you want to place it in
and follow the instructions.

No, sorry. There is a problem with the photo gallery. We can see the thumbnails of the new images but when we click to see the larger size we get a white page. I will check that. Thanks for letting me know.

 The gallery is fixed and everything seems to be fine. I made a mistake during one step of the upgrade but others did too so I've found the solution in their support forum.
Let me know how it goes on your side.

We will be here for you when you get back Russ.  Sand blasting the underneath for 200 bucks sounds like a plan.  Then POR 15 and painting.  You don't have to use an undercoat if you use POR 15.

well i put some good primer on it just becasue I didnt have time to get back there and finish her. is it too late to por 15 her, since primer is already on there or can I put it over it. I was going to rhino line the under of her, i have a buddy I can get it dirtcheap. How much can I get por 15 and what is the best way of getting it on there. I have a piece of the floor pan I have to fix, I have a pic of that too and when I get it done i figured i had to get undercoat on it. STANG OUT

POR 15 and other rust inhibitors are chemically designed to go right on the rust.  If you have taken the rust off and have painted over the rust area , you are wasting POR 15 and your time in trying to use it.  For other areas, you can go to Ace hardware and buy a bottle of "Rust Away" that is about 50 times cheaper than POR 15 and does the same job.

well I did get rid of all the rust underneath her, so I hope the rust free primer will help as much as possible. as you can see I took one as soon as I rolled it out of the garage, where she sit for two years. I finally got the motor out but my D@m wife erase them so what can you do. You can see alot of the rust in the battery tray, which if I might add tore threw my hand and almost had to go to the er.

you cannot really see it but on the pass side there was some rust right where the bell housing would touch, you will see in later photos. I am getting everything ready for soda blasting, or what I thought was soda blasting..........................................................

well the guy said he cut me a deal and did the top bottom and truck to include all the fenders for 350. Come to find out he put a dint in my gass tank and rear deck lid, I went back to punch him in his face, but the contract did me no go since I was aware of possible damage it could have caused. So it was a lesson, I still got a great deal but I will never use them again and my buddy is vp of bbb for Wichita and I did report them for shady business.................... anyways I got it home and got under it and saw what I thought was going to be the death of me....................................................... that is the driverside floor pan right under the rear seat

if you look at the pic of the trunk, right above the key whole where where the top of the trunk and back side meet up is where he dented it, but were are past that, NOT. Before my brothers on here get at me yes that is factory bondo no the front fender and I did shave that nasty thing off  before I sprayed it with primer

I didnt check the color and ended up spraying it witha copper undercoating so I went and got black and tried to cover it up but as you can see it didn't work great, but hey it is protected which is the big thing

well there are a few areas that need to get fixed but that underneath looks alot better, I know it isn't close to being done but for ten days I think I did alot more than some do in months, no that isn't bragging I spent every waking moment in there trying to get as much as possible done. I want to get some feed back also looking to get some ideas on what I can do in december since everything is out. I am thinking baout boring the motor out .30 and doing some small things to the motor but that is farther down the road, right now that body needs to get finished. STANG OUT
