Thanks! It still needs a lot of work, and I need to make some organizational improvements in the shop before I go splattering more compound on everything lol.

Facebook video link about the parts car.. Not sure if you will be able to see it or not! There is a bunch of goodies in that car!

I'm hoping to be able to part that 1985 out and fund most of the engine refresh on this 1992..

Body work is now done and in primer. I have a good friend who will spray the color once the car is driveable.


Here are a few pictures along the way. I was happy with how nicely the metal worked back to pretty flat. It looks like a lot of filler, but it is very thin. Less than 1/8" in the deepest spots.

(Before pic of front fender)








And the little crease on the back corner:

(Before picture)



The metal straightened as much as possible (It's thick metal there!)



1st layer of filler:



And final result (I know the primer is screwed up on the top surface. My dumb self dropped something on it while wet. It's smooth now )




I also traded some parts from the black parts car for this stuff. It's everything I need to fix mine. I'll probably try to find a nicer grille eventually, but the rest is presentable for this $300 car




Now all I need to do is get to work on the drivetrain refresh. That should happen over the next couple months as I save $ for this project I didn't intend to have.

Look's great!
I bet it's nice to do metal work without rust falling out.

It's a pleasant (and frankly rare to me) experience

Also opinion time:

I haven't sold the SPG side panels from my black parts car and am likely just going to keep them and put them on this red car. My heart wants me to grab the spoiler (regular turbo spoiler not whale-tail), and also put it on this car to complete the look.. Meanwhile my brain doesn't want me to drill holes in this rust free smooth hatch.

Your opinions? I can talk myself in/out of anything.

LOL...yeah. Because so often even what we think isn't rusty, actually is. I've been having that experience yet again while refurb'ing my new-to-me trailer lately.

Do whatever blows your dress up!. Personally, I'm always on the fence about the side panels, but the spoiler would make the hatch seem a bit less naked.
It's your car and you're investing your time and money, so why not. You've already got the parts in hand for relatively little cost. If you decide to sell it, most buyers would likely prefer the spoiler. Rust-free car or not, you're saving a beat-up 900S, so you're not defacing a mint special model. And, most importantly, you're not a fart-box ricer teenager who's going to make a mess of it trying to stick it on with rusty nails and scotch tape

I like the way you think! Spoiler is going on!

Started going through what will be needed for the engine build.. Nothing is severely wrong with the engine itself. Just want to refresh everything to where it's going to be reliable for a long time.

I know there is still a lot missing (ignition parts for example), but I already have a lot of time in this lol.

I hope parts availability holds out until I am at a place in life where I can rebuild mine.
