(These two pics show the re-worked wheel wells in place and the "new" rear floor pan, scrounged from a sedan parts car.)
Next, we scrounged some sedan wheel wells that were in good shape, and put the "dent" back in the top of them. These will allow the top mechanism some extra room when folded back into the top well . . . again just like Hudson did it.
2nd pic has the rear floor pan in place, spot-welded back in. Look closely and you can see the old cowl has yet to be removed, along with the front floor pans.
