    After repairing the top, I widened the the bottom area to fit the running board.

    I filled several holes not needed on the flange.

    I fabbed a new brace for the area that connects to the running board.

    I had to split the fender in several places to fit the arch of the fender well. I'm
    not using fender welt, and want a tight fit.

    Moving to front cowl area. I could not live with this gap.I had already repaired this
    area, and had replaced panel to match existing original!

    I bit the bullet, and replaced it. I will address the bottom left corner when I remove
    body.

    Of course the door had to be redone to match. Oh well, it's done.

    Reformed, and added piece here.

    I formed a complete new piece to fit the running board rather than have 2 welds.

    I cut, and reshaped the repo fender braces, here I'm finishing the outter hole
    for the carriage bolt. It needs to be spot on, it has a wire edge.

    I cut this panel in three pieces. I trimmed the bottom off, and ran a new bead to
    match the raised side pieces. Lots of fussing around to get the proper
    clearance around the bottom of the grill shell.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I see some cars without this piece, I think it adds a lot to the car. Now I have
    to do the other side.

    I'll have to stop posting on this thread for awhile. I have been recovering from
    surgery, and have not been able to work out in the shop. Last couple days I
    been doing some bench work. This sitting around drives me crazy! LOL
    I want to use a original 31 IN plate, of course they are a odd size. I bought
    one of those adjustable frames, but of course I had to modify it. I like the
    looks of the old plate, and will not repaint it.

    Not much to report on my Coupe, but helped a friend of mine
    with a little project. He wanted a cover to hide the dizzy, and wires
    which would match his air cleaner. I made a simple hammer form
    with rounded edges to form a piece of 3003 .063 alum. over which
    I had run a couple of beads in.

    Here is the piece after forming. We later welded some extensions on the sides
    so it would cover more, I missed taking pics as I was busy.

    Heres the finished piece after the owner sanded, and buffed.

    Fun project , he's the friend that 'donated' the front end for my Coupe project. He's
    a pretty good metal man, that gray trk has the cab extended with a 6" strip down the middle of the doors.
