After cutting and fitting the top of the new panel and the bottom edge of the old panel, tack the two pieces together. Then weld it up, jumping around and letting it cool between welds. Grind. Since this won't be seen, the grinding doesn't have to be perfect. Just enough to allow crushing the weld if necessary. As you can see from the inside shot, the penetration is pretty good. There are a couple of spots which need welded. Then on to the side panels.

With the hump out of the way, the new panel can be fit. LIne up the side edge of the bottom flange with the old flange on the side. Then mark and cut the ends of the box, leaving the flange at full length

The next step is to remove the remainder of the hump. I don't know why GM put this here. The other side worked without it. It may stop a vibration. Dynamat will take care of it if that is the case. Anyway, cut, hammer, cut, weld, grind, cut.

Didn't get the price or info. But this was cool.

Finally, the car that made me wish I could make my 41 go away so I could drag it home. This 64 Dart convertible had an all original SOLID floor. This just isn't natural. The guy said all the parts were there. At $3800, I doubt it is still there.

A 50 business coupe Studebaker. $6,800

This Nomad was ROUGH. But what can you say but NOMAD - $6000.

The Ghia didn't start out life as a drop top. Someone dropped it off later in life. $400 would make a good project.
