Total Failure

OK, maybe not but did require two tries.

The goal is to remove this stress tear, from rubbing the running board, it was not rust.

Running to Bed 1

So I cut a patch panel

Running to Bed 2

Traced it on the panel and cut it out

Running to Bed 3

Welded it in and flip it over to see this

Running to Bed 4

I used too thin of sheet metal, so I cut it out and did over again with thicker metal:

Running to Bed 6

Worked a little better this time, I knew I could weld better than the first try

Running to Bed 5

Ground off the weld and this is the result

Running to Bed 7

Just a tiny about of body filler will take care of the rest.
