passenger side done! (the worst side)


after... (the red bit is paint i didn't burn/grind off the sheet metal from the red car. i hacked another chunk from it today. also, most of what you can see is just the final layer tacked on to make the floor flat again. there's more work underneath that's fully brazed and more ... structural.)
