Boy! back on again after 20 months. Last post in March of 2015. Work came to a stop on my car. My brother in law and his friend seemed to loose interest in the car. No work was getting done and I think they were fighting between themselves over who wasn't doing their part. They started intimating that they needed more money, again. Shortcuts were taken, new bondo over old bondo and bondo a quarter inch thick slathered on. By June of 2015 I said enough. Bring it back to me, now, no arguments and we won't get an attorney involved.
Got the car back and started looking for a new shop. No one would price it because they couldn't see what was going on underneath. After about 3 discussions, I got my mind wrapped around the fact that I was going to have to strip the car down to bare metal. Manually. I had it blasted once and I worried about getting the metal too thin.
Worked on the roof first and this confirmed my suspicions. In the pic below you can see a rust spot where a patch of bondo used to be.
