So begins the restoration story of my Grandmother's 1972 Skylark Custom convertible... She bought it new in Dec. 1971, drove it and loved it. Here are some before photos for later comparison. Doesn't look so bad, right? <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/138/353961103_3b5c9daf3f.jpg?v=0"/><br/> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/131/353961100_f2d69223f7.jpg?v=0"/><br/> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/154/353961093_7c9d0a745f.jpg?v=0"/><br/> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/151/353961087_42c3a93b74.jpg?v=0"/><br/> The first round of process pix from <a href="http://www.paintworksunlimited.com/">Paintworks</a>:<br/> <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/152/353959381_3225d0df01.jpg?v=0"/><br/> As Sean began stripping off panels, he discovered the car originally had side molding. Do I try to find replacement molding or just leave it smooth? I vote smooth. <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/146/353959391_6a9dd85306.jpg?v=0"/><br/> typical rust holes in the fenders <img src="http://farm1.static.flickr.com/158/353959390_9e89644343.jpg?v=0"/><br/> What is that blob?
