I didn't take any more pictures after this set.  But this is another shot, further into the 1/4 removal.  It took about another hour to have the car ready.
 
This evening I prepped the new 1/4, but got rained out before I could show it just hanging on the car.  I have some more trimming to do. but I suspect I'll have the fender ready to weld on by tomorrow night.
 
Incidentally, I have concluded I am getting way too old for this stuff.  I passed out in my driveway this afternoon in the heat.  Fortunately I was alying down removing that little piece of lower 1/4 you see in front of the wheel.  Wasn't out too long, but there is a void in my time I can't account for.  I rested in the A/C for 1 1/2 hours after that.  I used to do this stuff in all kinds of temperatures.

Take it easy out there Steve, you should be drinking plenty of water
and taking a rest every now and then, its just to damned hot and humid
out. If you need a hand call me up, I'll make the trip.

Wow Steve, don't be making a habit of that!

You should get yourself a large patio-table umbrella and weld up a tripod for it so you can easily move it around. Rather than drinking just water, throw in a bottle or two of something like Gatorade or take salt pills. When I used to work in heavy construction, about a zillion years ago, the site Safety man made sure everyone took their salt pills everyday. If you let your electrolytes get out of whack with too much water, you'll pass out and or get muscle cramps.

That's part of the problem.  I dawned on me last night My wife and I are on a low sodium, low fat diet.  I recently lost 19 pounds!  So I sucked down a Dr. Pepper last night and another one today.  Got sugar and sodium.  Fat I have plenty of.
 
Elaine lost 28 pounds as a result of the surgery and the diet.  I lost the 19 so we're in a race.  The other day I looked at her and just said Hubba Hubba.  I got a meel smile.  She hasn't looked like this since we got married.  I want to loose another 16 pounds, which is realistic.  But with the hot weather, it might be a good idea to slow down.
 
I'll post a picture of todays progress.  It's supposed to rain so I decided not to start the welding.  Besides, I need a 2nd pair of hands.  Oh BOBBIEEEEE

Almost ready for welding.  Witht he approaching storms and the heat, I figured I'd be best if I didn't prep and weld today.  Next weekend I'll set it and finish it.
 
I need to get my Porta-a-power from the body shop.  I loaned it to him a year and a 1/2 ago.  There is an odd gap at the top of the door where the fender meets the window. Further examination revealed the previous damage pulled the top of the fender down.  I need to push it back up.  I'll do that during the week.  Both fender wells are damaged. 
 

 
 

 
I left a partial inner on the blue 1/4.  I did an overlap in the wheel well and will run a weld bead.  The top will be stepped and slipped under the existing sheetmetal left on the car.  Once I get that little bend out the body lines will be perfect.
