Cargo-side rocker alignment. This side is a little funky, because I go from a used dogleg to a beta-version b-pillar to a repro rocker to an NOS quarter panel.

Here's a shot of the inside of the wheel arch. I had to remove part of the inner section of the dogleg so I could weld the top part of the seam. I'll re-weld the piece back in later.

I'll probably weld the doglegs in this weekend; I did some test fits, then plastered POR-15 inside them.

And hour or so later, it's welded almost solid all the way across. I only had a couple small spots in the very middle where it "collapsed" and the skin bent inward, but part of the problem was that I didn't straighten out the donor piece perfectly before installation.

Well, after 3 days of trimming, adjusting and fiddling, I finally tacked the first few welds on the nose

Test fit of the new donor nose - it's just hanging in place, supported by the bumper brackets and a couple of magnets.
