The crush sleeves installed on one panel, the other panel is in place on the frame. They fit perfectly.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

I placed doubler plates near the flanges where the highest stress is. I doubt it will be needed but the opportunity presented itself so here we go.

With the plated welded on the edge to the new panel plug welds will secure it to the frame.

The Panel is mostly self locating. The flanges locate it in Z axis (up and down), the crush sleeves locate in Y axis (inboard, outboard). X axis can be determined by placing a straight rod through the corresponding holes on the other side or by sighting the opposite hole in the center (see second picture).

After sandblasting, notice the engine mounting brackets were removed. These are partially welded on so I get this done now so I don’t burn the final prime later.

I use a special process for priming rust pitted metal. I use epoxy primer but it is thinned with the appropriate reducer for the first two coats. The reason is to reduce the surface tension of the primer.

I suspect high surface tension of thick primer is to blame for the lack of penetration into the small holes of a once rusted surface. Thinner primer I believe will flow down in the holes better than thicker primer.

I also burry the deep rust pits with several coats. I will add three more coats of unreduced primer after the two previous coats. In my experience anything less is inviting problems.
