Finished the rocker and roof structure repairs on the driver's side. Repaired the A-Pillars (will post pics soon - tested my patience a little on that little project!) Ready to slap on a little POR and start hanging panels. :working:

More progress! Drivers side roof structure, Rocker repair, A-pillars, Drip rails and panel test fit. Had to knock off the lower windshield corners temporarily because I found a s!@#t load of more work to do!  :bricks1: Used the rain gutter trim to locate the drip rails. Worked out really well! :woo:

Thank you, guys.  :wave: Test fit the deck lid last night because I'd been hearing horror stories about AMD quarter panels being too short, etc. Perfect fit!  :clapping: I will hafe to do a little movement at the tail panel flange, and do a slight adjustment at the door seam above the body line (both sides). I think it will be pretty simple.
Here's to AMD!  :cheers: If a novice like me can do this, they must have something going on!
