Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I agree. Lots to love in that picture.
There are two things in life where penetration is really important .....and one of them is welding.

been working on a making some new quarter panels for a model a sedan we are working on

making paper patterns

laying the pattern out on steel and cutting it out

shrinking the rear compound curve into the panel

test fitting to the car and laying out lower body lines and wheel arches for the larger tire

lower body line and wheel arch put in

turning the edges of the panel to fit in the factory seams, as well as the lip around the bottom of the body and wheel arch to attach the inner wheel well to

inner wheel well made in clipped in place

a little more finish work and weld up the inner wheel well and this one will be finished, not to do the other side and a new rear panel
