I was originally just going to replace the rear section of floor in this pig so I could put the tank back in. I decided to change the whole floor. I had already cut the floors in half so you'll see they are on four pieces. ](*,) ](*,)

I got the last section of floor out today. I also trimmed back both rockers and the rearmost cab pilar on the driverside. Removed the front top hat and chassis crossbrace. Found that the driver side rail had a little more rot than I originally thought ](*,) ](*,)
going to have to spend some time on that now. Then the drivers outrigger crossbrace and top hat can get fitted next.

Tonight was moving night. There is no way I'll be able to fix this chassis on the ground. So I had to scoot it over to the bay with the lift. Nothing runs ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Beetle has a clogged fuel line.

Unfortunately =;

I think this rig would be a perfect spot for a set of triple gear reduction boxes! [-o< [-o<

Waiting on the parts for the frame rail. Floors are mostly fitted. Just have to double check that and then mark and drill for welding. Got the rear middle pilar in tonight and the inner rocker welded in. Also fitted the outer rockers.

Thanks!

The rearmost cab pilar is a bit of a pain on the DC. The Klassicfab's part is missing a small piece that gets spot welded to the side. The Autocraft part comes with it attached. However to my knowledge Autocraft doesn't sell the inner part of the pilar. Gerson sells them as a set inner and outer.
Added that piece tonight and got the inner pilar installed.
