having sanded, I ended up with a piece of Los Angeles in my trunk :D . Fortunately that I put not far from 10 tarpaulins in the trunk, calendar, ..., there will be less to clean

The continuation with the tip of the wing, this part will be more complicated

Then after having the shape of the angle with a protractor, I can see what angle I should give to my new pièces

Installation of the new parts and angle control

Installation of the new parts, you can see that I made a mistake in my calculations and that I am missing a small triangle at the bottom left of this parts (this will be arranged later). I will refine the grinding and sanding of the welds better once the parts are completely finished

Then before applying the white primer, I will redo the sheet metal seal which is part during the sanding, around the trunk.
I therefore equip myself with gloves, tape, and a seal cartridge with a gun

Then I protect and I can apply the white primer on the trunk, the repairs made and on the headlight strip that I had painted in dark gray after a while ago
