|Patchy front end|
|Corrosion above the headlamps, similar both sides|
The issue with the Log is that it's not really worth enough money to be worthwhile having professional body repairs, added to that the front eyebrow panel is only available in fibreglass nowadays which to me is not a proper repair. If it was a Sprint in similar condition then I'd be getting some bodywork and a respray done but for the log it's a question of going back to the 70s and using filler and spray cans like everyone used to back in the day!
ex owner Darren Sharp had let me know that there was already some filler above the headlights, so I though I knew what to expect. However, the amount of filler was a bit more than I expected.
|Worse than I though!|
Anyway, I ground out the filler, treated what was left with Kurust, followed by Finegans No 1 Rust treating and protector paint. Cut some thin sheet steel to use as strengtheners for the larger holes and then filled.

|Not a bad job, will be even better when cut back after hardening.|
