The quarter was rusty around the dogleg and unfortunately suffered from major dents

A paper pattern was used to transfer the panel shape

Temporarily attached prior to wheeling. I probably should have put some shape in first but my helper wasn't available so I just went ahead anyway ( I stopped by to see the doctor working on the 36 fender/ guard he is currently working on and got inspired to have a go)
Cheers John

Hey John.
Looks good. So glad you have gone to the dark side.

PS. Isn't that the side we started on last year.

Thanks guys

Yes Johnny, this is the same side ( actually the same vehicle. well spotted !)
We messed around trying to sort out the dogleg but I had a look at the practice piece and figured I could do it as a complete panel ( looks sooo easy on the DVDs )

When are you next down this way ?
Cheers John

Sweet job there John.
That is one hell of a big panel to tackle on your own!

Now that you mention it Marcus, it is pretty big. Should be OK when Bri shows up to help on Saturday

Bri complained about my hourly rate so now I just work by the sq foot !

Might re-do his roof next...................probably doesn't need anything but won't hurt to do it anyway.

Will call you tomorrow Neil

Cheers John
