Ok, I finally broke out the welder this weekend. Got the front rocker extension all lined up and tack welded in place. Of course, while being a little aggressive with some 'realignment' I broke it off again. That just confirmed that I suck at welding. I definitely need practice. I welded it back on again, but couldn't get a nice bead going to save my life. Before I try to put in that inner rocker, I'll definitely need to practice on some scrap.
As it happens, I might need to grind that extension back off again and try one more time. I got it nicely lined up in two dimensions, but the third is a bit off. I might be able to work with it. We'll see.
