Uncovered the passenger side quarter rust. Not that bad. I though it would be a lot worse. Couldn't cut any of it out today because my dad left the cut off wheel at work.



Also finally got a "traffic entering" sign so i can use it for my custom skid plate. Didn't get any pics of that yet.

Today was a very productive day. I got a lot of cutting done. Learned that its not fun cutting into your own car lol.

As promised a pic of whats going to be my skidplate



The donor fender



Test fit



All cut out



The inner fender is a little rusty but nothing that i'm really worried about. Cant do any welding until friday so tomorrow will probably be grinding and fitting and i might start sanding other parts of the car.

While that rusty shits exposed under there why dont you just buy a can of that stuff that turns rust into a paintable surface and shoot some under there? Wouldnt hurt.. It stops the rust from getting worse..

So envious of your weather down there. Do any of the southern cars really rust? It's been in the 40's/low 50's here which has been warm weather for us.

Some do by the coast line... But where im at, no zero rust. The weather is great during this time, I could see how you feel that way. Its right around 75 everyday and sunny around this time of year. But trust me, you dont want to be here during the summer when its 105 degrees and like 80% humidity and you can barely breath its so hot. Your sweating balls when you walk from your house to your car.
