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.
