the right side door skin on our 39 had some damage.
So I removed the skin from the good door and I'm getting ready to replace the damaged skin with the new one from the donor car

Debbie and I went to the Long Beach "Rod Run to the End of The World" this past weekend, and because I can't keep my eyes on the road, I spotted this 39 Buick Coupe sitting up on stands behind an old shop. No frame, just the body, or whats left of it. Well as it turns out this rust bucket will be coming home this week. Debbie, Wes and myself will be making a trip back to the coast with the car trailer to pick this Gem up.
Lots of parts I can use on my other Bucket.....

Rear quarter and tail pan, rust through, and out, and gone.
Typical for the late 30's.
Rear quarter had been hit in the past and needed straightening also.The right rear quarter and tail pan was rusted pretty bad. Both inner and outer skins needed to be replaced. I cut out all the rusted areas, now i'm ready to fabricate new panels. I used the old skins as templates to cut out the new replacement skins. The new skins were trimmed to fit and welded into place. Overall it looks good and no more rust.
