Great job, that's something I just don't have the skill set to do

I always like to remind people that they can develop that skill set.  A E36 M3ty old car and some small tools, a bit of steel and a welder.  

As my Dad used to say, "You'll never learn any younger."

I didn't have the skill set two weeks ago. I still probably don't, but I'm a little bit closer and next time I'll do it better.

I found a 'learning point' when I bolted the trunk lid back on. I had pushed the quarter panel down as far as it would go when I welded it. I didn't think to test fit it with the trunk lid - which had been removed and set aside. The edge along the trunk sits about a quarter inch too low. I will probably drill that seam back out and make it right.

You are well on your way.  Only another thousand or so "learning points" and you will know almost as much as you need to know.laugh  I am totally useless with paint, but up to that point, I'm a "That's pretty good for a mechanic." bodyman. I have little hope of getting to the  "Where did you fix it?  I can't tell." bodyman.
