That's some fantastic work. I admire your skills my friend. Not everyone is willing or has the skills to handle that kind of repair. Nice work!

The other side...  looked much easier to repair, but... After I wire brushed that area, I found a lot of rusted steel...  :banghead:
New sheet metal was needed...



A couple of hours later it all looked much nicer. It needs a little lead to be finished...  8)
