    Hey the car is cracking, a bit of rust doesnt change that. Dont hide from the problem however when you get a moment have a proper look and make a assessment. We all got rust somewhere. My arches are certainly not mint. Head up Tommi

            BIG UPDATE! put this off for far too long and i think wing zero deserves the attention. im sure some of you have been wondering whats been going on since my last post but alot has changed and it seems sometimes with alot of friend involvement time and patience.



            the following pics arent for the feint of heart... both of us worked our asses off and the outcome couldn't be better, he by no means is a body restoration guy he did his best and i couldn't ask for any better results. thanks for the encouraging words mark.


            drove it around without rear bumper still looks good lol


            didnt think i was that low but i had to make a makeshift ramp to get into my friends workshop and his house quite irritating lol: MOAR LOW LIFE







            sigh..


            started as a harmless bit of orange in my trunk behind the seam sealer. (honda really fucked us when it came to seam sealing everything cuz once water penetrates and starts to rust it keeps going along the weld under the sealer)


            after a lil more digging, at this point i was pretty upset at the findings already how much worse could it possibly be?


            oh nice a hole in my trunk: i kept digging anyways


            weight reduction at its finest


            more


            in the end this was all that was cut out


            even though in this pic i have a huge hole in my trunk, i still love this car and refuse to give up, i love driving this car! was actually lookin back at my build page, ive come a long way. too far to give up now.


            back to it


            big freakin hole u can see the ground great now.


            outside looking in


            cleaned up the area



            new metal formed and shaped to fit the hole. he ended up needing to cut and form three pieces to get it all closed back up










            the slow painful process of slowly tacking everything in place slowly to not warp metal.... (ninja turtles are the sh!t)


            before


            primered first




            proceeded to seal the whole trunk area inc spare wheel well.
            better than new i think

            special thanks to my friend KENNY. we spent almost 9 straight hours from start to finish.

              the work looks great, I doubt a body would have done much of anything differently.

                Im glad to see you didnt throw in the towel and you are getting it back in the game.

                It is scary when you see someone cutting big holes in your car. I had the same feeling couple months ago when getting my rear arches done. Hope you enjoy using it again.

                  I congratulate you on taking the time to repair it - I know it is a tough decision to start cutting!
