57 Chevy wheel flap repair

Cutting out a rusted and broken inner wheel well flap on the drivers side. The '57 has alot of nasty rust under it. I'm not buying new pieces like I did for the trunk. I'm making new pieces to replace what's rusted/rotted. I removed the flap to patch a hole and add a piece to connect to the upper wheel housing. I welded in a brace to keep the quarter panel pushed out where it should be, I'll weld the patch in and then trim the new metal on the wheel flap to connect to where it was rusted in half.
