10) Making a patch panel

Here are the steps I took to patch a small section above the rear fender well. I just used a piece cardboard to make a template, and then copied it to a piece of metal. (I used an old German door for sheet metal) After welding it in, I do the best I can to grind it down.

Here is the final shot. Since this area won't be seen it doesn't have to be perfect. In areas that will be seen, I will weld the patch in flush, and take more time grinding and sanding.
