I have been making progress on this over the week. A couple hours here and there, so nothing is going very fast. I did get most of the hole closed up though. I split into 2 panels, and tacked them into place.

Not perfect, but they fit decently. I have a spot that I need to make a weirdly shaped piece for and weld it in. Here is after a lot more welding. Not going to win any awards, but it's solid enough.

I'm going to run a patch from the corner where the third patch panel is still needed up towards the front about 6". It looks weak in that area, and I'd rather do it now then have a random hole show up later.

Spent a couple hours in the garage age this morning. Made the last patch panel, and welder it in!

Only thing left is weld on the muter mount hook. After that was done, I went around scrubbing all the other rusty looking area, then hit it with with rust converting paint.

Came out ok. Ill clean up the welded area, and seam seal them. Then a good coating of undercoat should keep it good for a long time!

Glad you opted to fix it. You deserve a proper 20v in your life ;) (Don't tell Taco)

That's funny! I haven't heard from him in forever!

I opted to fix/keep it because that's really the only bad looking part. Im hoping it doesn't prove me wrong in the near future

There's always a chance something new will rear it's ugly head, but these are rare beasts. Worth keeping by numbers alone, and they're just special to drive and enjoy all that aside.

Well, tonight is my last night working for a while. I am officially furloughed starting Monday. Who knows how long it will be before I go back to work. Maybe I'll get this back together in that time...

Thanks. The furlough means that things will be tight around here for a while.

I have most of the parts to put the CQ back together. We will see how far I get on my time off.
