Re: First 67 Malibu build
As i still had not purchased a welder, i decided to experiment and try using 3m panel bond for the firewall. I figured it was worth a shot considering how strong its supposed to be. I ground down the paint using a 40 grit flap disk, applied the panel bond, and screwed down the firewall overlay with self tapping screws. Let it cure for about a week before removing the screws. I then ground down and beveled the edges, and feathered them using glass reinforced body filler. Finished it up with metal glaze and filler primer. As this was my first attempt at bodywork, it took a long time of filler and glaze applications, and many rounds of blocking, along with a few more rounds of primer and blocking. Learned a lot from it though, and im pretty confident i got it flat.
