And after...a shitload of elbow grease, Dremel sanding discs, and sweat. I then cold galvanized them and hit 'em with satin black industrial grade paint for durability. I also decided to not let my perfectionism get in the way here, besides, I really dig the pitted, pocked-mark, scratched metal in some areas that only bondo would eliminate. It's all about the piece's history, it took 34 years to earn those scars...Porsche patina.
perfectionism was beat into me, this is why I'm dissatisfied with the quality of the industrial paint I used on the rear cover (top two images). it looks, well, shitty. I want it to look like the cradle itself and so out comes the 600 grit again ready to prep it for a proper coat.
