Very slowly measuring 600 times and tacking away. Only getting an hr here and there these days.

Measurements are coming back very close. Within a weak 1/16 on front to back door opening, and dead on with the others.

Floor patch is in and almost home.

This welding little circles until they touch is for the birds, but I understand its the only way.

Structural welding on cab is done!!!!! Cab can now come off the frame!!!! Rest of welding is cosmetic and can be done easier standing it up or rotating onto its side.

With kids and wife gone most of the weekend I was able to get the cab corner in. Welds are dressed better than the pic.

Kick panel holes drilled and welded to A pillar
Kick Panel welded to existing panel.

Extra rot cut out of the front floor.

patterns made out of cardboard to get my patches made.
