Default Re: Type 3 VolksRod

Got a few hours with the Sled this evening. Started the fabrication of the decklid blister to smooth in the new license plate light housing. Got the support pieces tacked in place and the new skin formed and ready to be welded on.

Still trying to decide if I will go in and cut out the original flat skin under the blister or just leave it there. My welder doesn't seem to like welding the edge of one piece into the flat surface of another.

I will probably rough cut out the skin, tack the new piece in place and then come back and dress the old skin back until I can get a butt joint and then fully weld it.
