That's awesome!!!
I can relate to the not wanting to get under it and weld. I hate the little suckers sizzling on my hide as they cool.

I agree. That smell of burnt ham sucks. I hate weld spatter on my head and in my ears. Looking good. Keep after it when you can.

LOL. I plan to gear up for that bit of adventure. Picked up a welding apron and have plans for other protection as well.
I just want to make sure that when I get down there I can still get back up.

Thanks, joedoh. It's a process for sure.
More trunk lid work today.
Did the 1/8th rod on the plate indent.
Started out by doing the old "Torchie uses a nail to fill trim holes, trick."
Wrapped 3 of the 4 sides on the indent leaving extra on each end.
Tacked then welded and filled.
Took my grinder and feathered off the ends below the indent to zero. When the final body work is done this line will just fade out.
Still have to clean up and fill the inner edge but I threw a plate on there for a visual. I have it positioned low right now as I may end up with a light above it.
That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by......

Thanks Crank.
At least the rear end.
I'm at the point where the next step IS to get back under the car and do the inner rockers.
Going to get cold here tomorrow and tomorrow night so I may just take a day off.

Let's turn that sucker over so we don't have weld laying on our back under it!!
Sounds real simple if you say it real fast.

I learned something else from you today. I never thought about using nail heads to fill holes. And I have some big nails and some big holes to fill.

I like the plate treatment!!
