anyone have a suggestion on how to reattach this small pc of trim to the main piece? originally it looks like it was spot welded.

not confident enough to try to do a MiG spot weld, very thin

pop rivets perhaps?

If they were permanently joined together and the backs are open for enough access what about using a couple of small sheetmetal screws or maybe screws and nuts. One might do it but two would keep any tendency of the pieces wanting to twist under control.

both front fenders have been fitted. Made a template to drill the holes for the executive spear.
took a small break to refurbish the headlight buckets, junction blocks and wiring. Found some Ford bucket grommets that work. Part no. 51A-13077

just curious.....what do the dust seals look like in this location. I have a remnant of one(taped together). is the other side similar? and does it run the full length between screws?

Went down the rabbit hole recently. decided to remove some of the factory sound proofing material, and discovered rust in a few places, trunk & rear compartment. working on fixing that up. will have to work my way back up to the front me thinks.

Rust can be a rabbit hole for sure. Other known places to check are the floors just inside the door jambs and the area at the bottom of the firewall where it flattens into the floor. Other somewhat hidden areas are above the headlights where mud and water gets thrown up by the tires and sits on top of the headlight box. Also in the bottom cowl areas at the rear of the tires where stuff is thrown and gets caught by some of the fender and splash panels and kept in contact with the cowl.

some more rust areas. in behind the taillights too.
on a positive side, my fabrication and welding is improving

HH56, yes rust is a bear. luckily I found the NOS front fenders. The rockers, front floor pans and A pillar have already been repaired. Do you know what the dust seals near the taillights should appear to be?

Rust repair in trunk under tail lights is now completed, both sides

Moving onto the rusty wheel wells, played around with friends shrinker/stretcher to form pcs. not sure yet if this is how I will proceed.

Question.... how much space is truly between the skirt and the body? I left the welting on when I shaped the pc. and left about a 1/8" clearance. Is this too much?
