Or let’s lift if, cage it, and BAJA it!!!! Race car recovery rig….if Buddy doesn’t chime in I’ll head down this path.
Early start today. Mid day update
Burned in and dressed the drivers outer dogleg patch first thing.
Bent up a patch for the inner passenger dogleg repair and patched a small section of the b-pillar inside the dogleg.
Same as the drivers side, spread seam sealer on the backside to cover any pinholes after dressing welds.
Lower pass b-pillar section next.
We will build it if it comes.buddyParticipantFebruary 25, 2021 at 3:12 pmPost count: 107
