Nice to see ya working on it man!! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]
another thing which has become habit for me, not just for alignment issues but also for structural integrity is to put in a sleeve. [attachmentid=10145] this is the B pillar on mine.
helps with the finish work too. just remember to lightly coat things with some weld through primer to help prevent corrosion.

Another trick related to this.

If you think you need more weld surface for structural reasons (narrow part with limited access), instead of drilling holes for plug welds.....grind a slot with a cut-off wheel. Fill the slot in same as you would a hole.

Sorry, no pictures here at work.
There are two things in life where penetration is really important....and welding is one.

Its all fun and games .........until somebody calls the cops.
