Spent a couple hours today making the patch piece for the rear portion of the r/s rocker panel where I have a couple rot holes. Just have some finish welding & some grinding to do & I will be ready to weld it in.

Finished welding & grinding down the welds on the r/s rocker patch piece I fabbed from an old piece of rocker panel to fix a couple rot holes in the rear of the r/s rocker panel, & cut & fitted the patch piece for the front lower portion of the r/s inner wheel house where the inner & outer meet. This weekend the sparks will fly.

Did a little more welding to the r/s "B" pillar patch, & stripped the rest of the paint from the r/s rocker panel & primed it.

After securing the new r/s outer wheel house in position, I once again test fitted the new r/s quarter skin. All the body lines match up perfectly.

Nothing picture worthy as it looks like the last pic just with more welds done. I braved the heat & humidity today after work & did more welding on the r/s outer wheel house. A few more welds to do & some grinding & then I will be ready to install the quarter skin.
