found some time to plug away, got almost all the hole in the firewall plugged and welded up, removed the dash and all of the wiring that went along with it, going to clean it up abit. Got the driver side panels roughed out. Was happy with how they worked out and they're symmetrical enough for me. 

Upcoming plans will be sourcing a brake booster, getting all the hardlines run, and fabricating some brake and air line brackets.

With having a new addition to the family I've been strapped for time, I try to run to the shop at least once a week. I've been in the process of stripping all the body filler from the previous owners and repairing some e previous repairs. I managed to knock out both lower rear quarters, need to make some final tweaks but over all happy with how they came out.20200518_175957.jpg.dadfbd94ba87f12427c88832a5c0878a.jpg20200518_182014.jpg.30a86204ddef09a0a511ef7ab0d6ed8b.jpg20200518_182022.jpg.2c439c83734396dc57f57592a23b4624.jpg20200523_160038.jpg.fe59193467430e2293c58e87b11a1baa.jpg20200524_202911.jpg.f078e67a734c5b6a7dc40508e1f7f963.jpg20200524_202925.jpg.53dc40317b80d2dcf866d2f17f3962f4.jpg20200524_202900.jpg.abed8fc0af5a21d65d4af73d46e8c7e2.jpg20200523_154412.jpg.a89ce30382b545cebe43726cc379a390.jpg

@Jboogsthethug thanks, Im still new to it but its definetly fun to do.

 

I put the squares in as a grid because I didnt make a buck (form) I decided to try using lines to figure out what radius went where, it also helped when making the driver side panel. It gave me a template to follow. Ill snap some pictures of the two panels side by side, they arent 100% but for a jabroni they're good enough. I've been contemplating whether or not I should make the other patch panel I need, the one above the wheel. If I do decide to make it instead of purchasing one Ill probably make buck

Decided to just scrap the entire back peice. It was layers of filler and metal mixed together.

Started remaking the patch panel on the back, ran out of time yesterday but got the basic shape. Still needs to be bent some more in the lower right hand corner and the exhaust opening still needs to be cut.

Been very motivated lately. Made some good progress this saturday, cut a couple big sections but left enough there to have something for the clecos to grab onto. The passenger rear quarter is coming our nicely. Incase anyone is planning on knocking out a rear quarter I ended up bending my body line to 12.5 degrees. The body line right below the window is in line perfectly when I put the weatherstripping in.

From what Ive been reading one of the more common ways to adjust body panels is starting with the door to the rear quarter. I currently have a 5mm gap+/-. Next ill be doing the door to the rocker.

Opinions on the fender flare placement?

@gerrud Thanks!

 

I with the lower door skin already made I decided to mount it and see how well it fit. Marked the line and cut abour 1/4in below it, came back to clean it up with some shears then finished it with a file.

The lower right hand corner had been previously brazed by the previous owner so we cut that out and bent up some more sheet metal.Ended up cleaning the outside edge with a flap disc and file. On areas like this I prefer to use a used flap disc just so it doesnt take to much metal away at once.

Door skin was left bigger than the door so I had some room for fine tuning.

Bottom edge of the door was folded over and extra material slowly trimmed from the door skin.20200613_191329.jpg.b79e99a55214d63b5cac3decc3ad11ab.jpg

I started removing the old rocker and replaced it with the new one. I was thinking of drilling holes in it just to plug weld it back to the car. Does anyone have any suggestions or input on doing it this way? 

Once the rocker panel was placed the rear lined up nicely but the front had a 1/2" gap between the door and the rocker. Ill need to cut the rocker and try lining it up better. Was also thinking of address the inside panel now that everything is open.
