Hi,
I have been trying to rebuild the rear passenger underside panels on my 75 vega, but i'm not quite sure how they should look. can anyone show me some pics of possibly 74-77 vegas or astres for what it should look like . Thanks for the help.

Not sure if it'll help but you might be able to get an idea from my build thread. Might have a picture of the area you're looking for.

Hi Phill,

Man! No disrespect but I thought I had it bad with rust. Yours is a great way to learn welding. :mrgreen:

Hi,
Thanks RamIt. those pics are just what i needed to see. Yah my car has some rust issues but it is a good learning experience. It's a good way to see the order that it was put together too.
I've started cutting out some more of the rust to rebuild the section. Again thanks a bunch.
