I've been cleaning up my work and filling in seams with welding, grinding, and some hammer and dolly work.

I also cut out and replaced more bad metal on a door jam. Here is a before, during, and after.

I forgot the cut out pic. I'm proud that I actually fabricated and matched the bottom lip of the jam!

A little more progress today. I cut out the front driver floor, leaving a little extra steel on each side of the rib for strength. I then cut off the remnants of the front two floor rib ends, trimmed the rotten edge of the transmission tunnel back to good steel, did lots of wire wheeling and brushing, and finished fitting the new panel. The lateral brace for the seat bench was strong and I was able to save it too.

Fun evening. I really don't want to pay $85 each plus shipping for these. Let's see if I can make them!

Today I finished making the floor brace from scratch. It's not pretty, but it fits and it does it's job! Later, I started cutting out bad spots on the trunk pan. I am patching it instead of doing a full replacement!

You're welcome! I wish I could afford to buy them all. I'll probably buy the rest of the floor brackets. That first one was a huge pain and I'm not real happy with it, but I've been short on dough. I hope to order the front passenger floor and both toe boards as well.
