You won’t regret it. Time of my life doing this with my daughter.Looks good.
Hopefully I’ll be starting a similar project soon with my 2 youngest daughters. Middle one (21) took a welding class a while back and wants to help with my projects, and my youngest (13) has laid claim to the 67 Camaro in the barn……..
Great work YOU GO GIRL.!!We made great progress on the jig. We altered the design by using 2x2 trailer hitch adaptors so, we can adjust height of the jig and disassemble for storage.
Katie did 100% of the welds. They are getting better and better.

Looks Awesome. You're not just building a car you're building memories. Keep on keeping on.Ernie.
Be careful you don’t get overspray all over your cars….
If it's an original lid, I'd keep it and fix it. I had some rust between the inner and outer panels on my SS hood, so drilled out all the spot welds, split the two apart, epoxied both sides and put it back together.Well, the original deck lid has rust in a few spots near the forward lip. I peeled back the lip, soaked it in acid and removed the rott.
I can fix it but am not confident I can keep the rust between the 2 skins from coming back.
do We even bother? Or should we get a new AMD lid. I will post pics of the damaged area.
Yes, we did us it when we fit all the panels. Here’s are the areas I had to remove. If it’s worth saving, I was thinking of putting acid into the deck lid and let it build up a phosphate coat. Then slosh around encapsulator. All this would be done after welding.I assume you fit the trunk lid with the quarters, filler panel and tail panel so I would try to fix the lid. Like Don said it's worth a shot anyway. Post a pic to give us an idea how bad it is.
