Bit more work this evening. Floor repair to meet up to the new inner arch. It was wafer thin and just blowing holes when attempting to weld in the inner arch. So I've let in a new piece. I will use a flap disc to flush off the welds tomorrow. One picture showing good weld penetration from the other side of the panel.

More pics. The inner arch has been very challenging to get a flush fit without manipulating to keep the panels nice smooth finish. Lots of cutting trimming off and head scratching.
