    My KCW account exec says to do the rocker…

    good idea….

    I made some progress yesterday… about 4 hours worth… 😎  Going to hammer out these blades, weld in a few nut zerts that are missing and fit the new parts to the old blades and then abrasive cleaning!!!!!!

    Pat will continue to weld and repair!  He was working on safar’s and OG style nut plate insert mounting system… 😎  😎

    Buddy…. I heard your 13W was out last weekend.. You snap a pic or anything??  😎

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    JJ finished straightening bumper blades and fitting new over riders/towel bars. He is out in the blast booth now.   90D3647E-281B-42C9-B009-A16A9B2BFF2E

    I finished welding safari tabs. The screw on dash tabs will be done after seal install.  E775C15B-AAA4-4B51-BDE1-9D3C7906026DAFE39096-1C0E-4CDF-B70D-7D381BD2A5CE5E99646E-A5DF-4C41-9C4A-70281E329B55

    Knocked out front floor fit. Decided to seal/ paint the bottom side before install. E6867763-4332-4636-9D27-3F41279E476747156BB5-FBBF-4BCD-AF0A-800DE00FBEEA06F8F973-29CA-493F-A282-28FEA5B5F7A88DAD33DA-5116-4266-BCC0-DCFB4C9DE967
