Episode 28 of my '76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo restoration is a sheet metal episode. Yes, I said sheet metal. In this episode I repair and reinstall a new set of front inner fender panels (removed all the way back in part 19). I was able to acquire another set in far better condition and they have been sitting in the car for several months. While I was waiting for other unrelated parts to arrive (perhaps a hint for next episode?) I decided to tackle the inner fenders as it is one of the last major sheet metal repairs and thus a big milestone in the project. And I was reminded of how much I don't enjoy sheet metal work. So to make the episode a little more interesting, I took the opportunity to include some great info on how to use POR-15. Included in this episode: media blasting, patch panel fab, welding, grinding, hammer and dolly work, fitting sheet metal panels, spot welding, using seam sealer, weld primer, prepping for POR-15, using metal ready, POR-15 tips, applying POR-15.
