Look like some one punched the lock on this lid. Yes and a few dent in the tail panel are. But was able to work it all out with a bar I made so I could reach in and hammer out those dents. Top was not really a dent like it was struck by something. More like depression's. But glad to here you got yours out. It is sad they don't make a reproduction lid. Think mine was a donor because in the top corner's it wanted to hit the filler panel on both sides where the quarter met up. So had to grind down the corners and Mig it back in. Keep it up your getting their. :thumbsup2:

Know your like me don't have a crew working on the car. Thought could build the car and have it done in a few year's but that came and went. Been a year just getting the motor and all the other part's in the car. Finely wiring the motor bay finishing up the front end. Shooting for May to have it running. Hope to drive it by June. Good luck doing a nice job. Russ.

I was lucky on that part. Only the crossmember had a little rot in it. On the passenger side. Very small hole so welded up a quarter inch steel box with out the top. Open side up and used my tig to weld it in with the stinger on the tig machine. That inverter really weld's not like the old buzz box welder. So figured it is stronger than it was before. Good luck keep at it your getting close to paint. I am in the engine bay wiring up the motor now. Waiting on some part's is killing me. But that is apart of building these car's. :thumbsup2:

Sound's grate can you get at it with the body hammer and massage it out. No rust is a good thing. I had to buy two new door's for mine. Bottoms where toast. Could have welded on them but that is more time spent. 5 year's is enough work to bring one back to life. Post some pic's.
