    Updated my member's rides with some of the work I've done on the passenger side quarter panel. Check it out.

    I'm inspired. I want to do that to my blazer now. I have rust in the same spot and need to cut it out and replace a section... but don't have the guts yet to do it myself. I have a couple of friends who want to help though. everytime i see my one friend, "when are we gonna do the body work and paint your truck!?" heh.
    Did you have any bodywork experience before doing this?

    Looks good dude!

    Looks real good. [​IMG] gotta love good sheet metal, kinda nice knowing what body work is in it, and not dreading what a previous owner botched together.

    Friends of mine who are basically family have a bodyshop and tons of exprerience. I've worked with them off and on for about 15 years. (more off than on) I mostly do the grunt work and my buddy does the actual skilled labor. Just watching helped. If I knew how to weld, I would be able to set it in place, but making it look good in the end would be another thing. Thanks for the compliments. It does feel good to know the rust is gone.
