Got out to the garage today, yahoo!
I have a 2-4 month wait for my variance to go through before I can apply for a building permit. Let's see if I can get my trunk done in this time. I don't think John's Angels will be able to drop one at my door, lol.
I braced the trunk opening first....
Then I cut out a bunch of spare inner wheel house.
Fit some cardboard templates for the new trunk sides.
