Indeed bob.
Just like my truck build, I see what I want it to look like. And then I attempt to make that happen.
Whatís the old saying about trying to eat a elephant. ď One bite at a time.Ē
Iím considering going at it a bit today as I want to keep some momentum going.
Maybe this evening.

Bob, I remember teaching myself how to handle big projects by 'eating one bite at a time'. You have to see the whole project, but you have to see daily bite sized chunks too. I think Torchie has you figured out. I'm glad you spelled that process out for us to contemplate.

Default lets call this "Half a bite."

Stared on the quarter panel piece first.
Doing this side a bit different then the DS as there is more of the inner fender well present.
Still lots of rust and crude to cut away.
I plan to have this piece at least finished trimmed and tacked in place tomorrow.
Keep on keeping on.

Thanks gang.
Fitted and tacked in the new panel.
Back cut on the body about an inch to get good full metal for welding up the seam.
Forward to the rocker panel area tomorrow. Debating how much of the old sill I will cut away.
Thanks for stopping by...
