Hello and thank you Zipdang ! :) 
the snow is beautiful but it's cold ^^
in many parts of France there is also a lot of snow, there is even a place in France where there is snow cable that there is the road surrounded by walls 12 meters high !   : /  .
but here in the south of France in Montauban, we have good weather, a little rain but overall it's good :)

Hello everyone, here is some news from the buick :).
While waiting to receive the joints for the rear deck, I start the work on the floor of the trunk.
When I bought the buick in 2013, me and a friend had to temporarily fix a small part of the trunk by welding a piece of metal and putting the paw on it.
now I cut this pieces to make something cleaner and stronger.
it can be seen that this part was rusting and puncturing.
I have with the cardboard redone several piece then reproduce them in metal and solder them together.
once the new part finished, I sold it to the original one which was in good condition.
I then sand this piece.

I will put the following pictures tonight
normally this weekend I finish some finishing on this piece and I weld it in the trunk :)

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of this weekend :).
After sandblasting and applying the phosphating paint on the piece I made, I did some adjustment and cutting.
I also saw that around this piece in the chest there was repair to do.
part is placed on the cross, so I detach and cut this piece to be able to remove it, we can see the cross below.
I then redid this piece, next week end I grind the welds and I finish some finishing.

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of this weekend :).
as we can see, there was a great sun to work this weekend :).
so I finished and weld the little piece I made.
after grinding the welds, I position the hunk and weld and then I grind the welds.

I also apply antirust (green bottle) in the transom.
once poured, with a luff (compressor), I blow on the product to spread across the cross.
soon I will apply "hollow body" (a fat product that protects and amputates the rust to settle)


next week end I will finish some small finishing and I will paint the new part.
here for this weekend :)

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of the work of this weekend :).
I finished grinding the welds under the floor.
I then painted phosphatant paint on both sides of the piece I made.
then I painted it in dark gray primary paint.
I then detach the support body / body rear right. Thinking that there was only this part of the patient but in fact there is also the floor of the floor of the trunk that is damaged at this place.
I must redo the support body / body and the trunk floor at this location.
this weekend I will start to reproduce that.
here is :)

Hello everyone, here are some pictures of this weekend :).
so I started to make a new support. for that I proceed step by step.
I first made the bottom part, the top and a band that goes around the support.
then I cut the part of the floor of the box or was to fix the support.
I then cut the two liners that remain on the wheel well and on the floor of the trunk.
I then grind the rust on the wheel arch and I applied rust-proof (acid-based); it's a product that blocks the pores of the metal and prevents the metal from breathing and thus oxidizing.
Originally the lining was pointing to the wheel arch, so I made holes in my new lining to weld the two pieces together.
next week end I will finish welding the second liners and the rest of the pieces that I made.
