I goofed..... went through the photos of this area and the piece I put on is too big so I corrected it. Then welded in the outer piece that overlaps it. Kind of weird the way AMC did this. Guess they figured it was going to be covered in undercoating anyway. Still have to cut a hole for the factory body plug.

Thanks Turbo! The cold is making it more difficult to go out there and work!

Working the trunk corner. Got the old stuff removed and some repair pieces made. I'll force myself out there tomorrow.

Are you using a "shrinker/stretcher" tool..??? Your trunk floor edge has the tell tale marks of one.
I ask because I've had my own experience with one during the metal work I did on my Gremlin. It wasn't as easy as it appears, but I did learn a lot from using one.
Nice work and please keep it up...!! I look forward to seeing your progress..!!

Sure did, good eye! The key there is to leave enough material to get it into the jaws of the tool.
