Very interesting! It definitely says a lot about your character as Jonathan said, and I would hope that I would do the same if I were in that position. I had no idea that body shops fed pockets of insurance adjusters, but it totally makes sense. I'm glad you are doing what you are doing now because you're saving/creating a lot of beautiful classic cars, and of course we get to see the amazing builds! Thanks for doing what you do and keep up the phenomenal work!

next the wheelhouses were addressed. hard top wheelhouses needed to be cut down to be used in the convertible. this was accomplished by using the old piece as a pattern. and also a tracing on paper

That almost looks like a car body again! Will you end up overlapping the top of the old/new quarter panel when you weld it? If so, what do you do on the inside to seal up the seam?
