Factory style Safaris…ugggghhhh……fabed tiny patches, weld, grind.
No one makes OG safari stepped rivets, that I could find. Spun up some bushings to fill the gap.
JJ and I hammered the rivets home.

Couple of hours into my day already. Heat was not enough to get the pin out of the ebrake. Had to cut the pin as usual.
Center safari tab in, fitting outers now.

JJ finished straightening bumper blades and fitting new over riders/towel bars. He is out in the blast booth now.
I finished welding safari tabs. The screw on dash tabs will be done after seal install.
Knocked out front floor fit. Decided to seal/ paint the bottom side before install.
We will build it if it comes.
