[quote="Peterg22000"And one last thing i got done, I had the front rocker/fender molding drain hole opened way up so it wont hold leaves anymore and rot out that section [u]again[/u].

Wow I was cleaning my car last weekend and noticed a ton of soil right where you are describing. There were broken down leafs in there and under that there was about a lb of very nice soil. Scraped and vacuumed it all out and was amazed at how much crap was in there, also concerned about what it might have done to the body.

Anyway, I love seeing your progress and can't wait to see it painted!
