Just rolled this one in and put it in the air.
We’ve been asked to make repairs to the frame rails and install new center sections.
Here we go.

Started cutting the junk out on Monday around front and rear center sections.
Finished dissecting those areas yesterday morning and started putting things back together.
Pass side rear inner and outer frame repairs.
Driver side rear inner and outer frame repairs.
Rear center section done.
We had a small section of Gerson frame with the bends in it to take care of a portion of the inner passenger front frame repair, along with a section of plate we had to finish it up.
Knocked out one of the front driver side inner frame repairs at the end of the day. One more repair to go, then the new front center section can go in.
We will build it if it comes.PeteParticipantDecember 11, 2019 at 6:53 amPost count: 880

We’ve hit a stopping point on this one for the time being.
One more frame repair needs to be done around the pass side inner/outer frame rail at the torsion housing.
Front center section and outer passenger front frame repair done.
We will build it if it comes.
