I have done a bit more this week end on Friday night I poped the engine back in and tacked the other engine side tray in. and this morning I got all the rear end back to bare metal there was a few areas that needid welding around the rear window and the top right of the engine bay here is a pic of it all in primer and then I made my way round to the right there was a lot of rust at the bottom of the quarter window holes all over it and pitted badly so it took me all afternoon to patch it all up. I am happy with the result tho just took up a lot of time thanks for looking
