Default Easy C Pillar fix for a Chop

I was cutting a door piece out for a Volkstruck I am building and ended up cutting through the Vent window frame also since I was to lazy to remove it. I went to throw away the left over pieces and realized this was a perfect arc for the C pillar of my other VR. This is a piece of the Vent frame that the vent sits in. It has another ridge you must cut off to work since its in a U shape.
After cutting of the outside ridge I simply welded in the Arc first then placed a filler piece and cut to size. Still allot of cleanup to do.....
but I love the arc it gave me.

Thanks alykat.
Should have mentioned that the curved piece is from the vent window on the passenger side. The drivers side vent piece didnt fit as well so i will use it for the passenger side c pillar. So anther words you gota swap em .....
