1. Sheet metal screws secure the roof to the inner structure (holes welded up later)
2. Rusted Drip rail cutout
3. Repair piece cut out of sheetmetal and clamped in place
Repair piece tacked in placed
3. To keep the heat down to prevent warping the roof, the entire new piece had to be tack welded. I didn't have my welder on the best setting, but still got decent penetration on the backside.
4. Welds smoothed out
5. Moisture got underneath the factory lead seam where the sail panel meets the quarter panel so the rusted section was cut out. The inner structure had some minor surface rust/pitting which was blasted and treated with a rust converter.
6. New Metal welded in and smoothed
7. Dynaglass water proof short strand fiber glass filler was applied, then lightly sanding and covered with Evercoat Rage Gold plastic body filler
8. Filler Block sanded and Smoothed
9. Final Blocking and Smoothing
