Cool

Thanks for all the positive replies! I'm hoping it'll help someone who needs a quarter panel but doesn't want to spend a fortune on a repo.

They said I was banned because I sold parts on here without the proper post count and was repeatedly warned. Actually, I don't believe I've ever sold anything on here. I'm sure it was just some sort of administrative error. They probably got me confused with someone else. Anyhow, I'm glad to be back!

Talking That is using your head

Very cool idea. It looks like the welds worked out. I was wondering if you used .023 wire? If not it make things a lot easier. We use E70S2 wire because it is a lot softer. If you catch it soon it can be hammered. Not very many places carry E70S2 wire but they should be able to order it. The repurposed washing machine worked well. Great job!

Thanks guys! Yeah, I used .023 wire. I learned to MIG weld sheet metal by reading an article in Hot Rod magazine about 6 months ago. I guess my subscription paid off!
