Work starts on the Saab

Update by Per Schroeder to the Saab 99 project car
Apr 19, 2007

Saab originally sold minilite-looking wheels made by Shelby and Ronal. The Shelby versions are very strong and good for rally use. We found three on eBay that were local to us, so we picked them up for $150 for the trio.

Then, last night, we decided to break out our newly freshened Daytona MIG 140 (a small 110v mig welder) and start repairing some rust.

After we ground out the fiberglass and filler, we filled the lip back in with small sections of steel. Filler and fiberglass won’t last long under the onslaught of thrown gravel. Steel FTW.
