    My gut says cut the whole floor out and weld in new but it’s so clean and rust free against the bulkhead I just can’t bring myself to do it. I may bite the bullet and get a Gerson floor then use the rear half behind the separation panel so it’s clean. I have the tank mounts from Gerson already, yes. I went into this truck saying I wasn’t going to make it pretty just get it solid, spray it with some flat green and drive the piss out of it but I got carried away. They get less and less fun the more they sit on the lift  😆

    Ha. I feel your pain. Its hard to stay motivated on monster projects…especially after-hours and on the weekends. I keep dreaming of being done and all the fun I’m going to have.  😀

    Your shop looks sweet too.

    That’s the part that goes first, under the tank. I like your idea of replacing the rear only. Keep cutting and welding till there is no rust!

    I hear you, my shop is about an hour from where I live currently so factor in a 10 hour work day, two hour round trip to the shop and 3-4 hours a night and I get that “what the hell did you do last night” look from everyone at work when I have had a late night with the bus!!

    My biggest motivator by far has been tackling one project at a time rather than look at it as a whole. I did get gnarly two weekends ago and literally just cut every bondo’d or rusty panel out of it that I could find. It was satisfying realizing there was no more rust in my truck! (A bunch of holes though lol) I’m right there with you dreaming, I know the work that’s going into this will be worth it though!
