wheel well widened, patch piece added to the frame (not ground down yet) and currently the inner wheel well is in, but needs final welding. I ran out of weld gas today so I'll need to get the tank refilled next Friday after work.

07-24-2011 09:37 PM driver side inner wheel well
This weekend I was able to resume on the car. I was able to finish up welding the driver side inner wheel well and I started the passenger side. I ran out of welding gas today so I was not able to finish welding it. I'll have to do that next weekend. I used the remainder of the day today to start cutting the tubes to make my engine mounts. I had to shim the body dolly and then shim the engine to get it centered and level, but the lesson I learned today was that I should have located the car in the garage farther so I could shut my garage door without disturbing it. I didn't- so I will have to do all that again next weekend.

The last pic I took shows a gap from the tubing to the dr side frame rail. When I position the tube correctly, that gap goes away. It was the only pic I had in this view...

It fits pretty well. I have it roughly welded in and I'll go back and weld it more as well as trim the excess metal along the bottom.

I just hope I can make the passenger side look as good...

I made one pie cut to the side of the inner wheel well and this fixed the gap that was forming...
