From October 2016 to December 2017 Sherman received a trunk restoration that took it from rusted mess to nearly read for paint. Believe it or not once this gets painted the factory correct way to go would be gluing fabric over 9/10ths of the trunk, but that will be for me to decide later. The trunk maintained the original pan, being patched where needed. Please enjoy the pictures and videos that span before, during, and after the work.

That is the factory weld on the support if you were wondering.

Notice the hole/tear at the top left.

Much better.

Underneath got professional undercoating.
