    Wow, I finally made progress. I welded the rocker in place. I did the upper seam first, making sure it was tight against the inner for each weld. I got the top all done and looked at the large mounds of metal. Ugly! I talked to a fabrication buddy, who said turn your speed down a touch. Did that, and then did the bottom pinch weld. Came out beautifully. Won't need much grinding at all!
    Next I'll clean and dress all the welds and then weld in the trunk drop. It's finally looking like a shell again!! Pics to follow once I mess around with imugr.

    I really doubt that. I hope to get the drop welded in tomorrow, but then the entire driver side is looming large. How's yours going? Haven't seen much lately...

    Got rear bumper lifted and tucked. A lot of the welds ground down. Going to be working on the custom tail lights in the coming weeks.

    Here's the trunk drop welded in place. I put primer/encapsulator on it. Tuesday I'll put seam sealer everywhere followed by the quarter!!
