    Last nights progress…started by fabing a couple repair sections, one for the center section of the bulk head and one for the inner section of the pass side frame.29C19D38-981D-4E4F-AF04-1BD1918E0041C3A3DAC6-94F0-4272-9A83-5372D8A746B945F62234-07DB-4EA5-A332-576F21C7535F5C1254A4-333B-4F6F-9FA9-A93BFE1CF020There was no way to slip the front cargo floor support in place without sectioning it. Cut it in three places, slipped each of them in their spots and welded it back together and to the frame.B12084AA-F0CB-4737-8145-6C24F487F517

    Front center section needed a small adjustment to the flanges to fit. E0CB4786-A8EF-4175-8A3A-B01A56B90C9B

    Front heat tube section needed a few repairs.20EB176C-C87D-4DC4-B632-508D20631FBC

    Slipped all the heat tube sections and the center section into place and welded them up. 13988C5A-3D27-44C9-96ED-9B1D8D12CDFDCC12B6DA-82C5-43E0-ADDC-914428DFDD80

    Inner rockers and a small frame repair up next. BD314866-0955-4062-80E3-29AA2D827117862BA3AD-A83F-4298-AF59-60B3A5447099

    Front center section then heat tube parts are next up. 582EA455-6ADB-4A85-B2EA-279BFF384930746C949C-978B-4E7E-8D48-9F5709E88F3B

    Had to cut the pin to get the ebrake handle out. Heat and some love from the air hammer to get the remains out of the handle.566C62BA-7536-4BCD-AF70-21C04E2328A4D9586B17-C269-4271-A418-3F7ABC2F3022

    I’ll be honest… Posting on here via my cell phone is very time consuming and uploading pics is very fustrating. With Instagram… Takes me less then 2 mins to post lots of content. But I’ll start getting more regular posting up the park way stuff.

    Get with the times bro….Forums are back!!!!…😜😜😘😘

    Front floor went under the knife last night. Like the cargo floor it needed both L&R sections, that along with the holes left from a long gone gas heater and a couple cancer spots best choice was a whole floor replacement.DF296BC0-7876-44DB-A70A-09C2F0B6B04C6D75CF56-72DA-481C-8244-ACB0330F487F

    Heat tube sections need to be removed for a complete front floor job.

    Both dogleg lips and driver a pillar will need couple small patches.

    Soaked the e-brake handle mech and pivot down with some sweet sauce. Hopefully we won’t need to cut the pivot pin…🤞🤞🤞132359D7-EE04-48E6-97EF-BB152C277B80

    Pans are roughly 25sq ft. per side.

    Are you going to do inside & out? Fender wells?

    Franz and Wes both have used Wurth. They said it works good, bit over priced. Dries to a bit more on the soft/rubbery side.

    We used Rockit on Mike’s Baja about a year and a half ago and it’s holding up very well and still looks great. The kit we used was $200. More then enough to do everything. https://www.semproducts.com/product/rock-it-xctm

    Pulled the pop out windows first thing last night. Only had to drill out 6 screws.

    The cargo floor needed repair sections along the long side and the cargo door side. When I found the front center section, top hat, and some of the bulk head were all cancered up, that pushed us to do the whole cargo floor….😳😳😳

    Started chopping about midnight. Cut all the major junk out in, around and under the cargo area.

    Major yuck above front center section…🤢🤢3BB3E064-64C4-485A-A233-9B7CB1D85375551EB308-D108-43F7-9632-8D945B8DFF5C
