Cutting out the rust

After sandblasting was complete, it was time to get down to the business of cutting out the bad rusted parts of the Metro Van.

In some areas that didn't leave a lot of material to work with so it was also time to start bending metal and making the missing pieces.

Some pieces can be pretty complex, but it's not like you can just order a new one!

Here you can see one piece that I fabricated to replace a rusted part. There will be more of that type of work for a while, but it's always a fun challenge. AND it is so rewarding to see clean smooth edges replacing bent rusted pieces!
