Boot Work, Part 2

I straightened out the structural member I saved for the trunk, and did a little more patching to get ready to test fit the trunk floor.  (Yes, that's the 'boot'.  What is it with those British?  They have a different word for everything.  Or is that the French?)

Front Wing Fixes

The driver's front wing (fender to us Yanks... come on, it's fun!) never really lined up properly with the bonnet.  I did a little patching to make things fit better and to fill in some holes.  This is a work in progress.

Bonnet Badness

I have three bonnets (hoods to us Yanks).  One that came with the car, one I bought in the late 90's and one I bought this year.  Two are rusted out where they all rust out, and one is solid in the front but looks like a five year old used it as a bounce house.  OK, it's not that bad but it needs work.

I tried my hand at repairing one of them, but it didn't turn out too well.  I'll have to see if I can take the one 'good' bonnet and straighten it.  Here's me removing the bad.


Here's the bounce house bonnet.  It's not really that bad, but "bounce house bonnet" is fun to say five times really fast.
