'70 Chevelle to be Reborn AKA "Frankie" Update #6 Trunk Work
I spent the morning cleaning up the trunk. I know it doesn't seem much different than the above photos and no it's not ready for paint, I just wanted to see if there were any rust holes in the floor before sending it to be dipped. (Every time I type or say "Dipped" I think of the Roger Rabbit Movie and how everyone is afraid of the DIP.) Anyway I digress, You can see the shiny spots that got filled in. Most of the holes were man made, the 3 in the center were from time and rusting through. Once I get the car back from the dipper, I'll put it on a rotisserie and clean up the bottom. But there are 10 holes that got filled in.
I also pounded out a few dents. The people who owned this car did not care what happened to it. Geez..... But all in all, the body is still in very good condition. Its better than most this age, that have rusted out floors, rusted out trunks, missing rocker panels, etc.
