Nope, on an '80. Daily driver when there's no salt on the roads. 76 motor though I found out, haha.
Separating the skins isn't a bad idea. I could weld the outer and have access to it from the back to get it nice and smooth. I'll have to take a close look and see if I can separate them on the seam easily enough. I'd like to avoid screws because that's more welding later on to fill the holes.
I was thinking about making a simple magnetic stand like one of those scissor-type lamps to hold it in place, or just have someone hold it while I do a few quick tacks.
