    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 floor fit, burned in, and welds dressed. D3E842B7-EAE7-4C43-ADC7-30070578BA6409FFAE9B-04E1-412B-A0EC-5E2B7A67159CE0B7C040-0206-4964-AAEE-5AF3E7AA8E0897DAB186-DC2A-47D4-9717-EF2B08A12342D5A8A15E-941B-4B96-A39F-D3A3B85CEE45FB6020D9-766A-4A09-B6B1-9B14EFF35B88E7A9B1C3-8983-420A-A748-F90E0E7160C7

    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
