Fixed another victim of the woods Crunch O Rama, needs a little more work but damn it's hot out. Good thing I worked doing sheet metal
fab for all those years, using 10 gauge, should last as long as I do.

Ok got that pulled back where it should be, now to cover it up with paint and weld it back together with a new piece. Another lesson learned.

That's I could not see WTF I was doing in the dark and gave up for tonight, no Bondo there though. I am a filler hater so do metal only. I need to throw down with a new hood I can't see crap out of that thing.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, I put a lot of work into that little 5x11 pice of metal, if it had been a whole floor I think I would be hanging from a rope right now LOL.

Here we go again, this time less work underneath, brick nose was rusted in spots and had a thick coat of nasty tar on it. This should be cake with no rust and the undercoat is peeling already. Looks like it should go pretty easy.
