    Started on the left rear this morning. Got everything dissected. Had to make up one  small path for the inner structure.B80254A4-C640-4304-8BC1-1BEBFB99EC5F

    Mud flap was also broken loose. A4322BEB-EBF0-4171-AB22-53BBB3CAF89D

    First fit is looking good.  0AA68A65-BE64-4432-9613-CC66C31B29A47568930C-E866-4402-B132-F33F686FB644

    Cool. Well get the fresh one on there. I did not see that hole but I will get it patched up.

    Drivers side frame/apron mount/ bat tray are all back together. 53FC6D88-ABD9-46DD-BF03-EEF6066FA0779AFA0D7C-7C74-4CFA-9ECE-A1409C65D329

    No more gap. EEA022F4-B445-41EC-82F7-C2AB4447DA5B

     

    Also got the pass d-pillar fit and burned in.279253BF-DD8A-4D4F-ACA0-64E59E6E4476CBA4D048-6AF8-447E-9A68-114F72074A8E19020E1D-CF92-47D5-B279-ADE504423ED508C2848A-3F56-4CB1-B947-FD0A37815949

    JJ sent an email off the Gerson, hopefully we’ll see the correct one soon.

    Knocked out a couple of small patches this morning. Dash.A4AB324C-FD48-4A18-8999-10875739D726E4861128-9C31-4ABB-9801-FB974D126326

    Old seat belt mount hole.33B43815-DD15-4BE2-B55C-26BBB9243539
    CD0B4682-8F74-4ABD-B0BA-8C21536AC3A6

    So I started looking at the driver side d-pillar area . Apron mount looked a little twisted.

    That’s because it was bolted together. F9EE30AF-BBAC-4F32-98CC-40C85FA9C26B2761B36F-758B-4C1E-B44F-EFF487E120F1

    All of the spot welds must have popped loose in the same accident that smashed the pass side d-pillar. You can see the gap between the d-pillar support triangle and the frame once I removed the bolt.B4A18242-B7C7-403F-A035-CE3ACBE3A1B2

    Driver side tray is is nice shape. 3BAB5EF7-0F6D-4B3A-94F5-E06E2986BE2E

    This corner has seen much better days though. The tail light patch is junk, has to be redone. That’s about 2ft of welding!! Going to be  faster, better, smarter to just replace the whole thing.

    What do you think Mike? We already have the correct corner.9FB21803-BB6F-4DDC-8E60-D2D863D053BC

    I pulled a halfdaybob on Mon. Got the front floor fit and half way burned in. 4D4C8335-B855-4FEE-A2E2-9272A0EBC727CB530A8F-4A44-4B02-AF8C-5ABA44D92D88

    Finished it up yesterday, along with the driver fender well/bulk head patches.268ACB59-CD95-4DA6-86D8-49D8C6515310457C988A-209C-4D75-9719-5E54A95D6735

    ^^ I think JJ got this more as a shop “toy” then a tool, cause he can.  Can’t wait to play with it. I’m thinking a rear engine cage/bumper for my baja will be my first project.

    It’s only a 4 speed. My guess is that vanagon is waaaaaay heavier  then the little subI it came out of.  Does get up and go though.
