Thanks mate, still lots of welding to tidy up and panels to make up, this lockdown thing is really helping, even though im still at work.

Its starting to take shape and look less like a scraper

Cheers for replys, lots more done, and still lots to weld up, im really looking forward to the filling and blending, but its nice hearing a solid clunk when i close the doors, the sills were a bit of a mare to line up, whats made it easier for me is ive got to replace the lower doors with new steel so i can adjust a little to make the sill gap nice and level to the doors, but not looking to shabby!

Hi mate , ive slid the arch under the original panel then welded , done spots all over the arch  to keep the heat from warping the panel, i did this in the past and it took way to much filler for my liking to get back into shape
