This is giving me bad flashbacks. I hate doing this kind of work. I'm not a pro by any means, but my only advice is to take it in small sections at a time. Once you finish filling in one little area, you'll be learn how to do it better for the next section. Welding is easy. Having the patience to prepare the area and shape a nice patch is what makes this take so long. By the time you have all the holes filled in, you might want to go back to your original patch jobs and redo them. It took me almost a year to get my Camaro back on the road. It looked like butthole when it was in bare metal, but after some rust converter, and ton of undercoating, you can't really tell the difference. lol
Don?t give up. Just one section at a time. I see you cut out a lot. I haven?t had to cut out inner rockers or sections of floor pans- just patches. It?s not for the faint of heart that I know. A guy I met a few years back Maciek gave me some inspiration. He started out in really rough shape with his 84 turbo. He makes it look easy though- incredibly talented. His build thread is on here somewhere.
