re: Ray's 69 Camaro
Looks pretty good to me, I like the all black look too. You could drive it for awhile and work on it a bit at a time. Floors look a bit crusty, but no gaping holes. If they are still relatively sound you could clean them up, neutralize the rust and use POR-15. I'd say you did good! My car had some similar junk patch panels held on with sheetmetal screws. It's fun to get some sheet metal panels and form them to fit and weld them in, you'll enjoy the work. Once the welds are ground off and its painted, looks brand new. Get yourself a welder and you can learn pretty quickly by watching some internet videos and practicing. The new Miller 215 has MIG,stick AND TIG. I've got a 211, but it doesn't have the TIG capability and I wish it did. Just don't buy a cheap flux core welder, you won't be happy with the results. Looks like a great starting point.
