1st attempt at cab corner repair (pics)

Well here you go. I know you guys like pictures. Here's my 1st attempt at welding and fabrication.
Inner cab before.


Inner cab afer after cutting out rust and fabing so pieces.


New corner fitment. Poor at best below the door pillar,


A little more fabrication and tweeking.


Another puzzle piece added.


More to come after welding it up.

Nice job correcting the fit, The PO of my truck welded them on as stamped, therefore the fit is not the best. I have plans to cut into them at some point and make the corrections as you did.
