    Thank you everybody for the kind words!

    Pat is it just me or have your metalworking/fabrication skillz just gone WILD lately?

    I turn 43 this month, like fine wine Willy, I’m getting better with age I guess.

    Burned in the package tray/firewall and dressed all of the welds last night. EE28B670-189F-47F5-88CE-99AF2B4F086FA9277C72-C52A-49A7-997D-BA4CCD4AB3E1

    Moved onto the drivers side lower a-pillar and heater channel repairs.D5BB0AC1-D37B-4A7F-A7E8-337892E90F4C6C301D6D-9CF9-414B-AD28-22C9016838F9

    Braced the a-pillar and started cutting out the junk. Going to put in a new lower a-pillar section. 1092990B-30C2-41B1-ABD7-6A30DAB333CD93D59339-577C-483F-82D8-8E0E6730DD37609ABEA5-CE75-4D8D-9D18-490ED88AE283

    Long section of the outer rocker had to be taken care of first. Bent up a section, burned in a nut for the running board mount, melted it all together and dressed welds. A21FFB15-1DE9-4CCC-89AA-6F9BA8380CA34C9AF271-2B9E-484A-BC06-14EB57006E6B

    Last layer was a section of the rear cross member. Just one small piece of the rear quarter panel/fender well section to go in this area.5CFF4507-26E7-450C-9715-4AEFEE38F53C8C77C960-6CCF-4390-B093-29D901947C8D
