Re: Project "GuldenRod" 72 Gran Torino Wagon

Next I held the skin in place and trimmed the edge so it fit just inside the edge of the opening so once it was welded on I it was recessed slightly to give room for the body filler to make the seam flush and the side of the panel smooth

I marked the inside where the framing was so I could drill holes where the frame was to plug weld the skin to the frame and welded the perimeter with the MIG welder

After it was finished welding the panel, I ground down the welds smooth and put a coat of body filler to make the panel smooth and flush

Next was to give it a coat of primer and i used some Marhyde High build primer
