and silver paint, which tells me that this side was crashed.

and below the duct was major crash damage.
are pictures of the left air duct. It is in perfect shape.
see where the tail took the shot. The dark spot in the photo
on the right is a repair done from the inside. The dark color
is paint that is on the inside.The repair was done right over

fiberglass from the inside of the front fenders, I needed
to prime before rust set in again.

of blasting and grinding. The right is the pedal area after
blasting. Remember, it's upside down.
