Damages found below layers of filler

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

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.

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.
