I got my spot weld removal drill bits yesterday. What am amazing tool!! After a huge struggle with rusty bolts, nuts and clips, I got my passenger side front fender off tonight for a small rust repair. The inner fender is too rusty to save because of battery induced corrosion and I worried that the lower rear corner rust had gone through to the cowl but that was not the case - the rear edge reinforcement metal is in good condition. I will do the new sheet metal repair tomorrow.

The other fender should be easier because it is a relatively recent replacement fender from 1971 or 72 that fits the car but does not have the side marker lights at the lower front area. I'm not sure I can precisely cut these slots to make this later fender work on a 1970 car. Might be time for a new fender and inner fender on this side because many of the bolt holes on the inner fender are cracked.

Learned to use a vacuum tester courtesy of Robert and Dale and it was very educational. I think my tune up will be better because of this knowledge, Thanks you Robert and Dale.

I scored a Grand Prix bar at the local u-pull today. It needs to be cleaned and painted, but for $7.50, I won't complain.

Fixed a leak I found on the intake manifold going to the modulator valve. Used my new found knowledge and tool(fuel pump and vacuum tester) courtesy of Robert and Dale's Online Garage. Geno
