Sanding the car is making progress, but found damages below the filler.
On the nose in the area below the emblem buckled and dented, pretty bad so I got an replacement part
The right side
So mostly banged up metal, no rust. There is some rust at the bottom corner of the aft fenders in front of the rear wheels so this will probably mean some cutting and replacing panels.
And above the rear wheels
Damages at the right front fender
A poorly repaired hole in the door sill
Sanding away 6 layers of paint
Damage on the the front of the fender
Some damage at the rear upper wing
The rear looks pretty OK, just some minor dents
All in all I’m feeling not so lucky. On the other hand, it’s a 48 year old car so it had to have some hidden damages. As I said most damages do not have rust, but they have to be attended to.
I came across this advertisement of Volvo, pretty funny advertising by Volvo.
