I thought this was going to be a quick clean up
do a little blasting rust treat and prime/paint
oh was I wrong
most at this point would Punt
but I can fix anything
ok lets show off the carnage first

this might take some time as I try to figure out and source
some parts
if I cannot find it
I will make it if I have to
I have a pile of Sheetmetal behind the garage from parted cars
I can use but I prefer to find the part I need first
anyway I will journal what I do over how long it takes?
as you can see it looks crusty around the top of the skirt

thanks
I just noticed that when I went back to look at it
I'm going to have to figure out the actual part number and go a hunting for that part.
I have seen a 04-6 quarter panel listed which might be the same part.
but I need to investigate into it further
I'm surprised there isn't a crash part made

I have a buddy in Colorado that supplies me
with a lot of clean original metal for my mopars
he told me the reason that it is so dry where you live
is that you do not get the morning dew in that area
we get it here a good part of the year
add in that I live near the coast that gives you a salt bath thru the air
off the ocean and I have the double rust whammy going on
before I even get to winter.

this kind of repair is right in my wheelhouse
just another miracle to perform on a car. lol
this is a easy one compared to what I've done in the past.
