Then, after the paint is dried I start to take care of the piece of metal to be welded.
Original the lining was "pointed" (welding machine in the factory) but this machine I did not.
I then proceeded differently, I pierced three hole in the double and in the metal parts of I made to put instead the rivet.
But before that I apply a seal between the two pieces (joints that use in the car manufacturing plant).
I then start to make some welding point to position the parts then I then finished and painted

I then cut out as I could (there is not much room at this place to cut and work), then after removing the rust I applied a product (green) which kills the rust up at the root :) .
After this product is dry, I apply phosphating paint, primer paint and black finish paint.
After doing this, I was able to solder my new metal.

I then repack the entire piece of the panel and then painted in primary and finish paint.

Then I started looking at the heating box, I took the radiator to a specialist company in the radiators to do a check of the radiator and do a scaling (cleaning).
We can also see that the bottom of the case is rusty.

Hello all, here is some news from the buick :).
I therefore disassemble all the parts of the heating box and I take the heating radiator to be revised in a company specializing in radiators.

Then after having sanded everything, I applied a varnish on the support of the pump so that it remains with the same aspect as original.
I then painted by phosphating the case, then painted in primary and black paint

Until the radiator is finished, after applying the anti-rust, I painted by phosphating the "cheeks" of the panel, then painted in primary.
I then applied an "antigravilla" and painted black to finish.

Then yesterday the company specialize in radiators call me to tell me it was finished :).
Apparently the radiator was very clogged, and once it was unclogging they were seen that the radiator was pierced in several places; It was a real colander.
They therefore change all the "honeycomb" (all the central part that looks like a grid), it is appreciated to clean and painted :).
So I can tomorrow remount the radiator and assembled the two parts of the heater box on the car :)

Beautiful work! I wish I had the talent to do these types of things, but I don't have the space, time, or accessibility to tooling to even think about learning. Where I live, it's also illegal to paint outside without a roller, and my neighbors were nosy and stiff. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to seeing it all back together!

Hello  , thank you Beemon ! :) 
I live in the countryside and I do not have a lot of neighbors :), one of my neighbor is my great father and the other neighbor are of old acquaintance so I'm not bothered by that;).
Normally next week I get the spi out of box (this was not the right one I had).
I will make pictures soon.
