You're the guy for the job Tom ! Bondo, another reason not to invest in shiny paint when buying one. Started finding that on my 66. Only they didn't bother to try pulling the dents first..LOL I know you'll get her looking good!

[img][/img]
The lip was cut off,and a new one was welded on with pieces of melal to hold it out,and make frame for the fiberglass mat. The whole bottom was gone. Got a bunch of sand out. Can't seem to post more than 1 pic.
