Got two wheels today I'm looking for two more if anyone has them pm me I'm more than interested.
Other progress has been slow the body work always takes the most time.
basicly I took the doors off and started fixing the rusted one, and prepping the rest. They all had rock guard on the bottom, which I guess is okay, I'm not a fan of the look, but it needed to come off for paint, so after some sanding those are all good. I've moved onto bondo now....
The rustiest door.
A bad pic but it's cut out and new metal welded in. The rest of the doors have some rust, but I sand blasted it, and I'm going to por15 over it. It's not bad enough I feel I have to cut the bottom of them off like this one
Bedlined the front bumper came out nice. The rear will be done soon, I just have to drill some holes in it to mount a trim piece I found that will match up to the tailgate nicely.
And I also sandblasted some of the rust spots around the rear windows, this created an issue because the metal was too thin. I then had to weld it all back together. Here are the pics after the holes were fixed.

Pics so far
Mounted the trim on the bumper today looks nice. I took it back off to paint it
The door that needs the most work.

I love them but I am but sure it would suit the retro-futuristic xt.
This Wagon will be awesome, and I'm not really a wagon lover!

It's hard to picture wing mirrors on a xt, but I think they could have them if it was done right, and look good too!

I'm not sure how bondo will hold up to a dash. I may try to find something else to seal up the cracks like foam or something.
And here's the site for the Flocking.
I also ordered a new windshield, and window seal for it today.
Spent the last few hours taking the windshield and Dash out today. I'm glad I did. It's a mess behind the dash and needs to be cleaned badly. I also found some more rust around the windshield that needs to be fixed. Anyway here are some pics of the process.
This is the 7th snake skin I have found in this car so far :spin:
Tonight I will be ordering the flocking. I can't wait to fix this. The dash drove me crazy in this with that huge crack.

I have a rough one too.
Posted 20 December 2011 - 05:46 PM
I accidentally made it like this...
and it was driving my crazy so I cut it and welded a new lip on it and made it look like this.
I then removed the front valence and started removing the huge dent, and some rust.
Headliner was taken out. I'm going to recover that because it's really dirty, and the color has faded quite a bit. I think I may redo it in plaid, depends what I can find for fabric I guess.
