Bad news guys. The trunk is trash. I can't go into great detail but there was a problem during the media blasting that wasn't noticed until the epoxy primer was applied. Anyway, I need to find a new trunk lid and start over.

I have one that had a little damage to the area by the trunk lock (wasnt bad) but some one drilled about 4 holes and pilled the dent. Thea holes need to be welded but its a pretty good deck. Al

More bad news. The hood is also warped. I was able to get a replacement trunk and hood from Jake today. I'll drop them off at Elliot's shop in the morning and do this thing all over again.

Patrick,

Was the warpage due to the sand blasting? I'm curious what your problem was since I now have a couple of fenders to finally rework.

Yes it was. They did a good job with the fenders. I don't know who the shop was. They were a sub to Elliot.

Fenders, due to the compound curves, can handle a lot of abuse, but flat panels are another story. They heat up and work harden to such a degree that it's very easy for these to just move all over the place, as I guess was the case here. You have to be very gentle and have a very light touch. Anyway, thanks for clueing us in on what not to do.

I've been going to contact a company in Canada about their process. This is their site:

Here is an update. The car is mostly done. The cutting and welding phase is done. It just needs some priming and assembly to get home.

Here are some shots of the new fuel filler.

question about your fuel filler location...

arent you afraid of the gas fumes entering your car (its vented inside the trunk now?) if you have stuff in your trunk arent you nervous it will hit the filler tube and bust it? Looks nice and clean, but id be abit nervous.

The cap is sealed and the tank vents to the outside through the trunk floor. I don't store anything in the trunk so I'm not worried about things sliding around.
