Stuff I have no business doing. LOL

More good times!!

My welding still isn't pretty, but at least it's effective and I know how to use various grinding tools and a metal file!
By the time I get this car done I should finally be decent at welding.

    hi Allan,

    ive heard u guys talk about lurkers, and me being new to the internet. i didnt know what that meant. well now i do. i just stay outside learning as much as possible. and for 2 years i have had dial-up internet. which i dont know if you have had any experience with, but ( well to keep this short, sucks ) down and uploading is virtually impossible. well now i have road runner, and wow what a diff. anyway i asked you a question a while back about how you repaired your rear quarter ( i.e. fender lip ) and you never responded. probably got lost in dial-up internet space. lol (laugh out loud) i know what that
    well here are the pics ive been looking for. i think this year im going to try to tackle some of the bodywork on mine.(which has alot of the same problems your 66' has.
    keep up the good blog. ill be lurking, i mean looking.

    Hey Brad,
    Sorry man, I don't recall seeing or getting anything previously. Like you said, perhaps it got lost in cyber-space! lol.

    My mom was on dial-up for the longest time and WOW, I really hated using it! Finally got her to upgrade to some higher speed stuff recently.

    I didn't post a lot of pics on my blog, but as you can see I had cut a small piece off of a larger front quarter-panel patch and then I flanged it and the original panel to fit it into place for the FRONT of my wheel lip.
    Then on the rear quarter, I unfortunately got ahold of a crap patch panel from a vendor starting with 'L' that was not a great fit. I had to cut off the back few inches.
    A friend and I then flanged the rear quarter patch panel, and the original upper quarter-panel piece just below the bodyline. We held it in place with wide-mouth vise-grips and then tacked it into place.
    I used a chrome wheel-lip molding piece to help me figure out the right front/rear positioning of the patch.
    I've got more pics if you want them. Let me know!

    PS. the company CARS makes a nice patch-panel.

    The company called CARS, do they have a website?
    and I assume they sell partial quarter panels. or did you fab that fender lip?
