Drivers side had bad rust issue, so I had an idea that this other side had one, too.
Welded seam had swollen a little bit and it had a thin layer of bathroom silicone...



Peaked inside... rust!!



Opened whole seam...



This was inner part...



Cut all rust away...



And weld some new sheet metal.



Then inner side of the beam...



Outer side done.



Then some paint and underbody protection.



And there is more to come... As it allways does.

Next thing was to weld missing corners of front fender. But first I had to take that bondo away... Oh boy... bondo it had!! Did not grind it all, that was enough... Oh those swiss...



Next thing was to take fender from my parts car... It had bondo too. Not so much, but some amount.
I think I can manage with that. That is amnerican bondo, from New York area....  ;)



It fits....like a glove. Almost...
