I'm still alive. Just been busy with work, family, etc. Even though I had a "4 day weekend" only today did I have any time to put into my car. Attached are pics of what I did. I wasn't happy with how the panel was coming out. I was getting a negative (concave) dip in the panel in the middle of the car, so I cut it and re welded it. You can see as I placed a ruler along it the "gap" went away.

I also did more welding to it and got it roughed out to where I'm happy with it for now.

I should get more work done this next month, I hope.

I had some time this weekend to work on my car a bit. I took a hand at some sheet metal fabrication. I don't have a lot to show, but a lot of it was honing my metalsmithing skills. And, by that, I mean bending metal in ways that I wasn't able to fix and slicing my hands with sharp edges of metal. I'm getting real good at that

I did get the base of the recessed panel and one area of the top. Pics are below, it should be enough to get the idea. Of course, I'll be trimming and modifying the bumper once the quarter panels are back on and the overall width of the car is determined (I am widening it a little)
