Wheel well repair

At the end of last summer I had two blowouts on the passenger side in one trip out. Ripped up wheel well good. Lost rear frame support and metal behind wheel and next outrigger was rusted out also. Panning from behind wheel to rear of trailer in bad shape also. I ripped it all out. Starting to fix it all to usable specs, trailer not a show queen but is very usable. I bought a plasma cutter and a bead roller for christmas this year. I made the outrigger supports and bought two sheets of 4x8ft sheet aluminum from local salvage. I had to make the wheel well dog leg molding from scratch, best i could do. The rear panning i have mocked up in place to do the finishing work. I welded in additional black tank supports.
