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.
Heater channel end cap went in next.
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.

Finished repairs on the rear section of the pass. side rocker. Before and after pics, forgot to take some during fab.
Marked out the new pass a-pillar lower section and cut the rusty junk out.
Worked up a section for the heater channel and started burning it in.
Dan sent a pass front quarter panel section because…..
Donor is a VW panel but a later NOS section with a conversion bumper mount which changed the pressing of the fender well area.
Sooooo……does anyone have nice front clip for a 61-67 they want to part with??? Pleeeeeeeeease…. with 🍒 on top!

Maybe I can get Rusty to scoop that up from you and haul it over. I believe he’s heading our way in two days.
