Some progress and some set backs

It was an absolutely gorgeous day today!  I was able to get some work done in my new location. I was able to remove the bonnet, boot, headlights, taillights and turn signals in preparation for sanding and primer.

 

While cleaning out the trunk I started to see more evidence that this car has been in a rear end collision.

 

Sigh.

 

Lots of welds and the seams don't seem to line up very well anywhere on the car.  Something that I didn't really see until I really stated looking.  One of these days I will look before I keep....maybe.

 

My friend who's helping me sand, paint and weld said "don't worry I'm a metal whisperer". So far the mug has come in handy on several occasions! 

 

Wish me luck.

Is that a new nose section? (I see the seams are not filled.)   If so, where did you get it?

Yes - a previous owner had a new nose installed. Old nose must have been smushed.
