Ground down flat and given a skim of easy sand.

with the window frame holes done to a point, they can wait the big sand together.

thanks Buddy, plenty of rust treatment is key to hold back the inevitable march of rust on old cars, the other key is constant vigilance, watching for the gradual attempts of mother nature to reclaim our vehicles.

starting to shape the corner piece, 1 weld, 2 shape, 3 weld, 4 shape......repeat.

Man that has got to become tedious after a while, but well worth it like you say

yep, one hole after another, each hole when fixed, can come off the list, the list shows 13, I won't bore you all with too many of them, here's the finished rear screen frame.

Not boring at all, is interesting and informative to see your approach and techniques. Bet your are chaumping at the bit to tackle the frame.

you must be clairvoyant Wayne, I took the cover off and gave the chassis floor pans a pressure wash off to get rid of the mouse urine, just for a change to the hole fixing. leaving it exposed to the sun and the wind to let it dry out.

the floor pans are total replace rather than repair.
