    In three areas I need to replace sections of the outer lip. Here's a few shots of the metal welded in place.

    Once the welds were ground I needed to trim, I used masking tape as apposed to a marker to provide a line. I cut this slightly larger than finished length with the cut off wheel and will finish with a file.

    I know you dont need it yet, but you will. The filler panel between the trunk floor and the panel below the decklid. I have a repo one. I also have some rocker panels, but it looks like your subrails have them already.

    Pulled the body off the frame Saturday and began the process of making the exhaust system ...

    I am running cats to get rid of some of the smell... trying to make the wife happy!

    Yeah, you need to run off the cats. One got locked in my Dad's back garage once and really stunk up the place.
