You can see the mess left after the brass and patches were removed. I cut away all the rotted metal back to good metal ready to weld in new patch material. I started fitting the rocker panel and discovered that it is 1/4" too long. I cut it and removed the extra length, it fit perfect but I didn't weld it together nor install it until the base is repaired. I'll also wait until I get some POR-15 to paint the inside before welding on any exterior skin.
