    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

    Heater channel end cap went in next. 0CA0BDB3-A44F-4EED-8B54-4830936B4F83E38BD3F9-FACF-4159-99EE-81ECE0E01196

    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

    We will build it if it comes.

    Marked out the new pass a-pillar lower section and cut the rusty junk out.  4C182DF4-7B44-44AC-96E9-3B420B5F389BB8DE596C-5BB2-4441-864F-82D0CEF4B3DD

    Worked up a section for the heater channel and started burning it in. BE225DFC-4480-416D-B5C9-811742DD8EF7EA5CF0F1-D8C5-48A5-A038-83D19560A497A5BA2400-8E67-44AA-96DA-CEFA87951DE17FCA71E8-7012-4C6A-878E-228388AF2683

    Dan sent a pass front quarter panel section because…..58B8ED8E-1868-4993-92E4-A2CD0512499F2BB4FFD6-AE64-4F66-927A-3DBE5657E9C8

    Donor is a VW panel but a later NOS section with a conversion bumper mount which changed the pressing of the fender well area.
