More metal working. The front corners of the turtle deck quarters are rotted (like most everything else on this car!). Howell's wants $45 + shipping for their patch panels.......not! I can make these myself.
What to use for sheetmetal
A quick scan of the 'free' section of my local craigslist produced this..........
Right after I grabbed that my neighbor tossed his old washing machine. Grabbed that one too!
Old appliances are great as the metal is 16ga (just a little thicker than factory sheetmetal) and the 90* reinforcing corners work really well for edge material.
I used the side panel from my neighbors washer.
You can see in this photo I also used washing machine metal for both inner fenders too.
