Yea they are. It's not too bad working with a little larger area though.
I've got a couple more small areas that need attention.
I've bought a Baileigh bead roller that won't be here till 10th of January, I want to use it to make those parts.

Finally got to do a little more work to the truck.
There was a couple rust spots I needed to take care of.





This is the passenger side and I had to make a floor pan brace too.



I welded the passenger side kick panel in too



My new bead roller was put on backorder, won't be here till first week of February, so I'm going to wait to do the areas with offsets

OK, I got what I've been waiting on
A Baileigh BR-18E-36 bead roller
Here's what I done with it first thing
The cowl on the drivers side had some rust thru beneath the hood line, where the finder bolts on.

Baileigh bead roller


Rusted panel


I made a card board pattern and transfered it to the new 18 ga.


Then I used the bead roller to make the relief match the cab


I used rare earth magnets to hold the new patch panel in place so I could mark the cab


Set the patch panel on the cab held by magnets then marked the edge where I will cut out the rusted part

After I removed the rusted cab panel, the inner panel was rusted too



So I cut the rusted part out and tacked in a new piece


Welded it in then ground the welds


I primed the inner panel then welded in the outer patch panel and ground the welds.
I didn't want to bore y'all with the grinding part so here it is finished


I'll do some more tomorrow and take pics of what I get done

That is some really nice work on the patch panels, and I imagine you are super happy to have that nice bead roller working!
