My first attempt ever at welding a patch panel.

To paraphrase Chief Brody in "Jaws", "We're gonna need a bigger can of Bondo."
I've got a little burn-through to work on, and the last 3 inches at the wheel well.

But I'll keep pounding away. If the next fender looks better than the first, I'll be pleased.

Back that hole with some flattened out copper pipe and fill it in.
