Without further adieu, lets get the pictures rolling...
I will just lead the patches and be done with it. That will cover the pinholes and at the same time will smooth the locations nicely... if I do it correctly!
Still I will be leading it so hopefully that will solve some of my problems with these patches.
Again came out quite nicely, but I should be picking up pace as these took far more time that they should have taken.
I had marked the cut lines, but unfortunately the rot had spread more widely around the fuel filler as I anticipated and I had to cut quite large piece out.
Unfortunately I did not have time to weld the panel, but it fitted really nicely (top is a little proud so might need to address that) and should be quite ready for welding.
Got to say that these kind of clamps are really helpful to hold the piece in place and they also pull the different sheets level with each other.
As I'm quite happy about the outcome at this time, I really hope that my welding will be successful!
It would really suck to fumble the panel (and the side of the car) at the welding stage...
Knock on wood!
