Super nice work! Love that ST tribute, too! What's your plan for an engine?

I'm interested to see how you do a good job welding in the crossmember with the quarter panels attached. I face the same challenge, but my left quarter is already off.
Mine is a 1967 912. But cross member is the same on a SWB.

Yesterday weather was superb so I decided to start working on the panels. Repaired the rust issue between left headlight and new wheel arch.

Cut up rear frames today. Only way to properly fix rust issues and bumpermounts...
Wonder if the stiffeners are 912 only as they are located where the 912 engine mounts were..?

I'll bet you are correct That these are 912 only.
Probably shown that way in the original parts book.
Mine are not so rusty but slightly bent by the cross member.
Time to buy a Celette jig!
