Finished the right side lower cowl repair.  It took some time, but I think it turned out fine.  I'll attach the outer fender mount soon, and then it's on to the rocker panel.

Finally found some rear quarter patch panels.  Not totally perfect, but you know how it goes when you're dealing with old sheet metal.  That completes my quest for all the patching/rust repair materials.  The completion is now more reality than just talk.

If she is a close, personal friend of yours, I would like to extend a warm felt "Hello There".

Not sure what I think of the paint colors on the walls...Purple and Green.

Some more rust repair.  Front right cowl patch is a graft from a southern donor car.  Rear wheel well patch is home made, and I'm quite pleased with the results.  See Before and After pics.  Next, I tackle the rear portion of the same wheel well, than lay down a couple outer skin patches.  Stay tuned for more updates.

Each piece is another challenge. This small patch that'll never been seen has about 8 hours into it...there's some efficiency issues I have to work out. HA! I suppose an expert could've patched it in half that time.

Good news! I've finalized my plan for body work and paint. We all know a solid paint job is spendy and it must be long lasting too. I've got a resto shop lined up to take on my car once I've finished the rust repair. Conceivably, the car could be rolling this summer! Now that ice fishing season is over and I'm done with the winter sickies, I can get back to fabbing and welding metal patches.
