What's not to love about that?

Short version of events. I got the left side wheel house wall repair patch I made a while back screwed on and the house drilled screwed to it for a test fit.



I had made the wall patch house flange the same width as the flange on the house and once I moved the patch to the inside of the wall, it was too short to move the house inboard enough. I took it all out to see what I had to add for that and just absently set the patch on top of the extension plate. These 2 pieces were made a week apart and never compared to match a fit. I had intended them to overlap as necessary to get the position I need for the house. This fit just blew me away. If I had TRIED to make them fit together, they wouldn't have turned out this well. I just tacked them together and got the width I needed...



Both of these pieces were shrunk/stretched and ground to fit the wheel house independently.

With both of the tubs clamped in place, it was time to set the body on the frame to see how close I had guessed as to their locations.



And YES, it is really nice to have this kind of power equipment to do this.












Left side is about 1/2" too far in.



Right side only needs to move out about 1/4".



After the adjustments, there should be room for a 14" tire..



That will have to wait for a few weeks. It's too damn cold here and Florida is calling...
