Well, it's been waaaay too long since I made any progress on the car. Don't really have much of an excuse, except life gets in the way sometimes.

Anyway, I finished and painted the battery tray. I also cleaned up and painted the little metal pieces on either side of the decklid and reinstalled the rear window and trim. Still have a ways to go, but I feel better putting some pieces back on the car.

It's finally time to take on the last "DAPO" instance I found (so far) on the body -- the hole in the passenger-side latch panel.

Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the rust holes inside the DAPO-hole all welded up. It's done, but you'll just have to trust me that I did it.

I was able to buy a patch piece cut out of a donor car. Here's a pic of it trimmed to fit.

I bead-blasted the patch and painted the backside to protect it. Then, I cleaned the metal around the hole and tacked the patch in place.

In the next update (whenever that might be), I'll show the second half of patching the hole -- welding, grinding, filling and painting.
