    Never give up, keep your project alive an put stronger sheet metal in place of the rust. Sand blast to get to fresh metal.

    Do you guys know if you can get the sheet metal panel from behind the battery area. It looks like it may un-bolt. Inside of passenger fender at front?

    It does not unbolt. It is welded to the car.
