It really came out fantastic. It is somewhat comforting to know that all things are not necessarily lost.
Personally though from previous experience I am always concerned about the new longevity of the sheetmetal on cars like this.
I personally have seen very short life cycles on the sheetmetal that has been heated, shrunk and pounded out?
That metal doesn't seem to have great longevity once put back into service?
I noticed the primer that was mentioned and it definitely will be on my list for next time. Sure hope it does the trick?
Thank you for the photographic journey. I really enjoyed it a lot.
