Well i made one hell of an attempt today to put my rear pillars together and get some welds in there. Kind of frustrated right now, but here is what i have so far, and the other side is tacked.

Hey it's just more slicing and dicing . You got the windshield pillars straightened out nicely so this is just another piece in the puzzle .

Patience is a virtue ?

Yeah , I reacon that Patience must be a virtue since I never did meet a girl by that name . Knew a Faith and a Hope but never met a Charity either , come to think of it . Sorry , I have a bad cold and must be delerious . LOL

Where do you think hip-hop came from? someone got some slag stuck between their shoe and sock and burned thier hoo hoo jumping up from under a rocker ,falling down and doing the Curly shuffle....I wish they would invent a welders cup...
I was at a body shop last week and saw this black guy jumping up and down and all over the place and knew right away he was on fire or had some slag in his shoes so I ran over and started to put him out and get his shoes off,poor guy .....but he WAS just dancing ,I did think it was funny that all his friends were standing around watching and not helping.Oh well ,now my daughter says she'll never go out in public with me again......But heck it was me that almost got beat up,they thought I was steeling the kids sneekers.....,
OK breaks over ,now lets get back to work....Chop Chop

I literally was caught on fire by one! I was under a pickup bed making some plug welds a while ago and my shirt caught on fire, I mean FIRE! I didn't know it and some guy walking buy grabbed a fire blanket off the welder and began slapping it over me, scared the hell of me! But thank goodness he did, who knows how bad it would have gotten before I noticed.

Well since you brought it up .....me too. someone had to put me out just last year...I was sitting on a bucket welding and the frayed edge at the bottom of my pants started burning ,the flame was all the way up to my knees and its funny I had no idea ,must have been the long johns. luckily someone was there...I thought I smelt something...Something I learned a long time ago is always have an air hose with a blower hooked up and a pump type water bottle "before" you start welding anything.Once something is on fire its hard to find all that stuff if your panicking...and always have some good fire extinguishers hanging up in the shop ...

I'm thinking the doors may be the tricky part . But with what you've done so far it shouldn't be a problem . Thanks for keeping it current . It is fun to watch it take shape .
