No happy trees, but I did make some happy little welds

Folded the lower lip return. Now I need to fold the profile, but I ran out of daylight.

Nice to have both quarters on though.

Thought it looked wrong. Went outside with the template to see why- lo and behold in a hurry I used the wrong datum point and measured the panel too short.

I'll slice a section out and extend it down, that'll work.

This afternoon after shopping was a bit cooler than it has been so I cut the repair panel off and beat the arch profile a bit better.

Arch itself was too straight and the lower return came at an angle which was wrong, now has a nice French curve to it.

Ignoring the triangular hole I need to fill in, that looks many times better.

Even looks good in 3/4 view so I'm happy with that.

The kids will be too cool for school running around in that as their first motor.

They may end up just getting driving experience in it; wife wants this one for herself now...

How about a V8 ute for them to run about in? At least then they won't have 6 of their mates in with them
