    I believe you can but it will be hard to weld in all of the front part of the rocker panel.

    There's no procedure that I'm aware of I just cut out enough metal to get to the good and cut my new parts to fit the part I cut out.

    It's a whole lot like peeling an onion.

    How long has it taken you to date since you dug into it?

    If there was a "bringing it back from beyond" award, you'd win! :bow:

    Dash and bulkhead painted.

    Got the dash and bulkhead painted. Now I've got to start cleaning up and painting the interior odds and ends.

    Waiting for my next pension check so I can buy the firewall pads.:D
