Great work. Again Why did you use the lens housing/rear bit from the yellow narrow body sheetmetal. Is of different to the SC?

Interesting how you chose this line, going up the door jamb and along the quarter window to splice the flare in.

Is a line like this easier to match / fit than a round line that follows the outside of the flare?

Doing the other side, the round flare weld wasn't the easiest for me. figured this time I would do it this way as part of the weld will be hidden under the quarter window and the vertical weld was more on the flat panel section.

Still learning this whole auto metal working part. I'm pretty new at it and I'm sure some professionals are reading this tread shaking their heads at the whys and how comes I'm doing the way I am. but they learned how to do it from trial and error also.

Youíve got a lot more experience than me WRT panel welding. Iím just trying to understand some of your thought processes so I can learn.

Iím OK at fabricating parts, tubing etc., but Iíve only welded in a panel once, and that was by cutting out the old spot welds and welding in the panel on the old spot weld holes.

I hear ya.

Sometimes I wonder about my thought processes myself hahaha. next time I will go all the way to the door jam instead of the long vertical butt weld.

live and learn.

It's seems to be a bit different then what most people are doing these days. but I've never been one to "follow the crowd". I build for me and me only.

Thank you. I am pretty happy with the results considering I'm relatively new to metal work.
