    As usual, progress has been slow but in the right direction.
    I got the alternative piece welded in.
    It went pretty well, but did end up with a slight distortion.
    I decided to have a go at panelling it out and was very successful to a point.
    Once I had satisfied myself that it was out of my pay grade I put two small cuts and welded the gaps and it pulled up just right.

    In the meantime, I have dropped my cell phone which did damage to my camera and it wont focus right, so not too many pic's until I find a new phone replacement.
    However, I am back on the road again and heading in the right direction...

    A lot of extra work but looks like you have done a good job in keeping the shape whilst welding so much better than starting again

    Thanks Jeff and Dan, well I am getting there but get the feeling I am destine to doing things the hard way while Murphy's law continues to apply.
    Thank God for some good luck along the way...
