Knocked out a few more bits this morning.
Fit up the pass inner rocker and a section of cargo floor support first.
Followed by the outriggers.
Prepared everything and burned it all in.
We will build it if it comes.FranzModeratorOctober 19, 2020 at 1:57 pmPost count: 4508

Mocked up drivers side inner rocker and rear top hat section to start last nights shift. Burned those in.
Outriggers, jack points, lower b pillar, and long side support lower section were next.
Started fitting long side outer.
Made up a small patch section for the front inner lower section of the driver rear fender well.
Just finished tacking the long side into its new home. Really happy with the fit!!!

Finished welding up the long side rocker then dressed welds.
Also dressed the top side welds of the cargo floor support repair sections and outriggers while cleaning up the back of the long side.

Good to see you this weekend Buddy… and I got all your parts home safe and sound in my bus….. 😎

I got the pass side dissected down to useable weldable metal and about to start putting it back together… Pat is cranking on the drivers side.. I didn’t want to cut soo much out… but the inner pillar was the worse….

We’re tag teaming you in the dirty shop today Bubby…..hope you enjoy it…😘😘😜😜
JJ is back in action!!!! Knocking out pass side front fender well/ b pillar/ bulkhead work.
I fabrocated a bulk head section and a closing panel to finish up the drivers side front fender well.
We had a couple of funky green closing panels for the front fender wells, but they were a bit short for what we need.
Drivers front fender well is all back together.

Knocked out one last small repair on the long side near the b pillar yesterday.
Started on driver side seat belt mount repairs yesterday as well.
Patched the bulk head first.
Small section of the seat pedestal to start off last night.
Sandblasted the backside of the mount plate and burned it in.
Lower section of seal channel to finish off this repair.
Fitting the driver side section of the cargo floor now.
We will build it if it comes.
