I realize most would walk away from these remains.
For it is therapy on one side and finding out if I can do this on the other.

There is just enough shape left to recreate the nose. Just taking the old out piece by piece, replacing it before cutting the next piece.

I love watching the body repair process when guys like you just know how to see/read the parts where rust took them from and form them. Nice work!
Thanks.
