So awesome that the dirty shop is as strong as ever and JJ is getting the well deserved break he’s earned. KCW machine!Pat KKeymasterApril 10, 2018 at 8:50 amPost count: 1513
Moved over to the pass side Friday. Cut out top hat sections, front outrigger and front jack point that blasting exposed the rot on.
Got the inner rocker, cargo door rocker and rear rocker section burned in and dressed yesterday.
Lower rear cargo door nut plate fell out when I removed the pass outer rocker skin. Opened up the c pillar from the back side to get access.
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantApril 10, 2018 at 9:13 amPost count: 872

Ok Cool. What’s the low end torque like with that setup? I like single port motors – best one I ever had was a SP 2110.Pat KKeymasterApril 17, 2018 at 2:37 pmPost count: 1513
Back on this rig today. Finished up pass corner and batt. tray last Tues.
Tore into drivers that evening.
Lots of pushing/pulling and hammer/dolly work.
By end of day Wednesday had it looking pretty good.
Bit more of the same today. Just need to burn the inner section back in.
We will build it if it comes.
