Currently ...

Back edit after figuring out hosting

Everything shown in the photos, aside from reassembly, happens over 15 days.

Never tried posting from a phone, but I can post images hosted on my Deviant Art account. I have to use Tinyurl.com to shorten them first.

Thanks, at least it confirms that I am not totally inapt, I’m just not willing to give my email address and password to post a photo, seems irrelevant and potentially intrusive, my phone is indicating the connection is not secure

Alrighty, things have progressed at a unexpected rate, pic as of 2 weeks ago, apologies for starting in the middle.

What we have here is the riv freshly revived from its 6 month slumber, being in primer for a few years this is where the current chapter starts.

(still looking for something to show from its past but that may take some time)

We started at the trunk area as this is when work stopped last year after hastily repairing the roof and LR 1/4 panel from a tree hit.
Hoping the addition of seam sealer, where the rear fenders attach, catches the body leak that has plagued the RR floor since restoration #1. Yes there was fine rubber inserts in the seam for a finished look, they were not viable nor practical to reinstall during round 1

(package tray carpet has been changed 2 times,once black, then red!  Seems there is nothing like factory stuff for UV resistance, more on that later)

Sorry for the crap photos, just winging it, work is happening fast and this is a unplanned documentary.

Trunk cut in and back on, bumpers swiped from parts car, yeah I'm aware some things may be slightly out of order

Roof stripped, body work almost finished, remember, this is the second roof and it too has been tree hit.

Trivia, since 2005, with never hitting another car, formally a sunroof car, 2nd roof, 2nd set of doors, 2nd set of bumper supports/covers, 3rd hood/trunk shocked

On a roll here...

Hood oxidation, It is possible the parts car lived a couple years up north, otherwise there is no rust on this car.

Pics a little shuffled, front bumper beyond practical repair due to a recent blowout cracking multiple layers of paint, easier to swap out, while it was off, before paint, I also swapped the cracked radiator (yeah, I admitted things were getting neglected the last few years, sorry no pics)

Thanks, here is the next round, first I start with a forgotten pic, sealing under the trunk hinges, then we get into more primer prep.

Glancing blow from tree branch repaired

Sealer primer was good to hold things together between annual repairs, but to prevent any chance of lifting, epoxy primer has been used on top surfaces.

I found the thread with front fender trim clips, how about whatever I need for this issue?
