many, many delays with this fix. i'll post more pics of the slow progress and a couple of other things that need attention. these project car that people like me can afford need all kinds of repairs to make them whole again.
much time spent reversing bad repairs from decades ago when the tool of choice seemed to be a torch and a mallet.

I ended up buying EMS outer skin too, which is the only game in town and will speed things up a bit. i was spending too much time working on the piece i cut out which was work hardened and not being cooperative. this has made more work though because now i will need TWO long horizontal seams. you'll see.

the inner EMS panel gave me a lot of trouble because the ends were not stamped for anything i was going to join together. not enough metal hang over to attach cage nuts to, or plug weld to rear fender houses, so more time figuring out how to make it solid again.
all the tough decisions have been made and it's moving forward again in my spare time. here's some pics.

At this point it's all just clamped while i think about the order to begin as some things will prevent access to other steps that need to be done. i think i can start tack welding it this weekend on the inner panels. as much as a pain in the rear all this - i enjoy it.

hopefully all this will help someone who needs it. more pics to come as it moves along.

Yes, their stuff is better than nothing. However, in a few cases, not much.

Good luck with your project.
you are correct. the inner trunk floor extension kicked my butt. it had to be stretched 5/16 - 3/8 in width, and all the
curve hammered back into it to match my untouched wheel houses.

whatever metal the parts are stamped from - it's very forgiving though. i felt like a blacksmith i was pounding it so hard.
