idrivejunk I am thinking about prepping both qtr repairs then epoxying everything inside and out then just welding almost constantly by bouncing around. Theres five yards to weld, pick a spot! As long as I don't get greedy that might be the most efficient way to go. What I haven't decided is whether to join the halves before installation or not. Might be best off if I was to plate and screw that on the outside, until I'm butt welding the long seam. In the pic, the new panel is shoved behind the old along the top for the moment.

If you are MIGing that quarter you about have to change the wire spool in the middle of the job and hope your Argon lasts. LOL What a weld, holy crap.

idrivejunk Pugsy, thats GR-RRR in Pontiac speak. I am still feeling the concrete on my back from yesterdays bearing wrestling match. It is good to have the blown one back.

How about this for a grin, a first-ever cover shot for the shop I work at. Real nice article. In stores now. Thats the blue Ford I tore down and installed a bed floor in. Crew did nice on it and the mods are just right.

Posted above, compressor running.
But, not really sure. I was getting frustrated and stopped.

So, today, I thought I would do something funner like change my front flex lines and rebuild the calipers without the use of my hoist.
I hate this freakin house build. Can't even use my hoist without hours of moving stuff out of the garage. So crawling around on the ground, breaking brake lines....arrgghhhhh......

John long Got back from Nashville Good-Guys.

Hoping to get a 71 Nova brake pedal tomorrow for mocking up to Precious. It's hard to be sure what you want until it's in your hand.

BTW, Put the top up. Rain-x'd the windshield. Drove 160 miles home expecting rain......Nada, zilch,...none. The car was never wet the whole weekend. Just amazing.
