I tried to look up the dealership last night. Couldn't find anything about it. Does anyone know a good source of info on old dealerships?

Check down in Dayton, maybe the place is still in buisness or just changed their name.
Objects quickly DISAPPEAR in the rearview mirror and PLEASE stay seated until the ride comes to a complete stop!!

I requested the info for my car and they mis-read the ext color code so my "official" document shows the incorrect color - nice huh?
If a man speaks while in his garage and his wife does not hear it, is he still wrong?

Finally got the wheel arch patch panel. Not the greatest quality, but I can make it work. Doing some test fitting before it gets trimmed down. The body lines look like they will be pretty close and it does fit nicely to the outer wheel housing.

Do yourself a favor and get the welds hotter. Those welds are too cold. Hotter weld will give a better weld and reduce grinding time.

I agree, but I'm at the mercy of my welder. It seems different from day to day. One day it will make perfect welds, and the next it's just terrible. Hopefully when I start filling in it will be in a better mood!

I have an old Century 110v might welder. It was my dad's and I ended up with it. On it's good days it will make a nice weld. Other times... not so much. I've restored several cars with it over the years. Too cheap to buy a new one.
