Default Project Ruth.

Hi all.
As I am planning to give my baby a new paint this year, and will do it all by myself in my garage, I guess I will end up with millions of questions and issues. So I thought I better start a separate thread, so I can keep everything under one umbrella. At this moment, I have taking the windows, bumpers, emblems off, and only have the window in the passanger side doors to do. Next big question to made my mind up on is when to take the engine & tranny out as I like to paint there as well. Iīm in the middle of if I should by myself a lift or not, as it will make the grinding, painting and buffing way easier if I donīt need to lay down on the floor to do that. Will be useful for any future service as well. Finacially, it just donīt come at the right time. But does it ever?...
First question for our experts here on the forum is this: After taking out the window on the left door, and the little vent window as well ( Man, that was a tough job! ) I found a crack in the frame for the vent window. See picture. Does anyone know if itīs possible to weld or solder this material? If I donīt need to buy new stuff Iīm happy as I want to keep as much as possible from the original car.
