This is how I fixed that spot:  I used one piece of cold rolled 16 gauge, instead of overlapping thin metal on top of thicker metal:





Very similar to the way that I am repairing it.

It's only a flesh wound!

One of many.

Do you know of kfjdm? https://kfvintagejdm.com/
they are making reproduction panels for 510s. You should check them out 

I am pretty much done with panels on this car. I have seen the great work they are doing, it is great to have another source of parts. Most of the parts were purchased from FutoFab before I even picked up this project ( Previous owner had grand plans that didn't work out) I actually only bought the trunk drop panels and rear arches. The fender panels and rockers came with the car. The floor boards were made by a guy that is here on this site.

The front piece is in now, and The car can literally fly in the air*! I cut the metal out, bent it into shape, cut out some plug weld holds and slapped it into place and fused two metal together using the hot stick better known as a MIG welder.



*Disclaimer: It cannot literally fly in the air.
