    Progress is slow but steady. I need to remember to bring the camera to the shop.
    Thanks for the compliments. This is my 1st 32 build so I'm a little slower and more cautious than I was with my T and As.

    Updated with pictures. Front cowl patches and right side quarter and wheel well. I think it is going pretty good. The new patch panels need a lot of rework before they are even close to fitting right.

    Panels are mostly welded in. Finish welding and panel smoothing still needs to be done.

    I got the drivers side quarter and wheel well panels in today. They are just tacked in. Both panels took a lot of modification to fit properly.
    I will post more pictures when i get more welding done and panels smoothed.

    Im waiting on my door patches now.

    I still have a few small holes to weld and weld the inside of the panels all of the way around. I still have some grinding/sanding & hammer/dolly work to do.

    Its getting there.

    I got my door patches the other day, but progress is going to slow down a bit. My baby girl was born yesterday morning and suddenly I have much better things to do than work on an old rusty coupe. Wife and baby are doing great, big brother is proud too.
