Started working on the hood frame today. Since I have no tool to bend square tubing, I have to resort to the cut and weld method. Man, that heat shrinkage is a bear to handle.

Finished the driver's side door transition after reworking the leading edge with my faithful pipe dolly because the gap was too large.

Attached the fender portion of the fender-door transition today. Reworked the position three times before finally getting it right.

Finally getting back to work on the S10. Out of town for what seemed like the whole month of September, then dealing with real life issues when I returned. Continued work on the driver's side fender-door transition. Rolled the edge of the door filler to match the fender filler. Cut the fender to start fitting the filler.

I made a pattern to transfer the fender-to-door transition edge from the passenger side to the driver side. First, I traced the edge to kraft paper, then cut it out of some cereal box cardboard. I marked the edge on the piece of bed side and cut and rolled the edge with a hammer and dolly. The rolled edge matches to the pattern pretty well.
