Got a few small things done this weekend. Not much extra time lately, so I'm doing what I can when I can. I got my new welder up and running- I went with the Eastwood 135 mig. The price was right and so far so good. I finished up the passenger side seat brace and have it ground down, just needs to be painted. I also built the plugs for the floor pans and have those welded in. Now that I'm a little more comfortable and confident with welding, I went back and added more metal to the rear window frame, and replaced a strip of metal on the driver's side. I only have pics of it in process. I must have forgot to shoot one after I trimmed the metal. I intentionally left the large piece of metal on there to start for 3 reasons. 1- more metal to soak up the heat (less warpage). 2- I can trim after it's welded and worry less about cutting too much metal off beforehand. 3- larger handle to hold while tacking.

I also started to prepare my cowl panel. I trimmed some patch metal for what's left of the inner dash panel (under the cowl panel). I welded in the brackets for the fenders, as well as filled in some extra holes. I used some washers to help fill in the larger holes. It worked quite well. Enjoy.
