I am doing this quickly, its all hidden under plastic cladding but i wanted metal in there. It was gone, nothing left from the middle of the rocker to the wheel well. I still need to fill some small holes in the sheet metal work, grind the welds down and put a finish piece in then a bit of filler. All the bending was done by hand, no power shears, metal brake, wheel, etc and only a small miller 140 welder on the ground, no lift. I will cop to this bit of a hack job. The car is for sale so i wont get too fussy but i don't want to sell it butchered either. The rest of the body is perfect. I just wanted to show it can be done at home in the backyard with a small machine and a minimal amount of equipment.
