This weekend I worked on welding in the middle trunk panel as well as the tail panel. I did my best to align it, and, of course, the panel only fits so well, so I spent some time revising the weatherstripping channels to make them align again.

I also plan on a little customization to the car, and with that requires the removal of the upper half of the tail light panel. I plan to recess it in an inch or 2. I realize it seems like more work to install it and then rip it apart, but I wanted to make sure the panel was installed and fitted before cutting the panel up. Hopefully I can get it back together again.

Following the small panel install I decided to start chopping the back of the car off for the trunk floor and tail panel replacement. I made some decent progress, imo, as the tail panel is roughly trimmed and could be tacked in place. I think. Before I do that I want to make sure the inner panel fits and everything looks square. I also need some paint for the inner frame rails. I would use some rust encapsulator and tried to order some, but I was just informed as of Aug 1st the Eastwood co. can no longer sell that to residents in CA. @#$$%!!! I'll keep my political comments to myself. I'll have to see what else I can get in its place.

I used some square stock to brace what's left of the car while I chopped the tail off, and I repaired some of the frame rail ends to reinforce them as they were pretty much rusted away.
