      Lining up the center section was probably the biggest challenge. I think I roughed it in pretty damn close.

      A bit of buildup was needed where thin & crappy sheet metal just kept burning away.

      Final blend. A touch of Bondo will fill up those tiny crevices.

        Overdue, but mini update... Car got home right before I left town so I havent done much other than pull it out to take some pics of the current state of affair. Still having trouble finding someone to help with paint, but it appears I have some traction in that. We'll see...

          Took the car out yesterday to go meet up with some buddies. Drove by this spot which I used to see all the time when I worked in El Segundo

            Looks good. The black rockers and lower fenders don't look bad to be honest. Its a different look, but not necessarily a bad look.

                Spent a little time in the garage today making minor adjustments to the pass side doors to get them to a better place. The rear door to quarter panel gap felt a little too big and the others were really tight.




                Before.




                After.

                  Another trip to El Segundo. Another cool backdrop









                  Im home this weekend so hoping to get the prep work done on the trunklid, because my buddy didnt have the time to handle that part. If I can get it prepped properly I am confident he will handle the final coat of Dutch Blue...

                    What did you do, just shimmy/pull & push each part with the bolts slightly loose? I was scared about the potential of the door slipping and just having to start over with the finagling. Super tedious. I don't know if you found a better way.

                      Dutch Blue, sounds like livestock or an act you can pay for in Amsterdam.

                        Shims

                        Italians pride themselves on their regular use of shims, rather engineering things to fit well har har har
