    • time to make it level.... and drag out the stands

      then weld it yesterday's part and this into place




      this creates the floor for the cargo area and also allows me to run cross braces that tie through it to the frame

      • Groovy!! :-)

        also looks like it beefs up the rear axle "Kick Up" in the frame

        • tire stripping earlier today

          easy


          time to weld the cross brace together


          and remove this inner wall


          removed

          I think the braces will look like this then cut the middle out so I can put the battery in the battery box (that will be behind the chassis brace)


          I need another bracket solution... think the alternator is going to move to the other side

          • let there be paint


            so the V... is so I can put the battery behind the brace


            chop chop


            tack tack


            weld weld


            paint paint



            more chop chop



            mostly it's there because I needed to weld the bar - but any extra space behind the seat is a good thing. tomorrow, floor

            • battery box issues

              and it can get through the hole...


              but I dunno, I've threatened before to put it in the engine compartment - but even there has issues (too close to heat)...

                      • time to make it real
                        but first, a brake repair



                        now I can bend
                        to be honest, I haven't decided if ribs are necessary


                        the tonight project is fill these holes


                        battery box


                        and there it is... means the 'floor' is a bit taller, but since that area is pretty much useless once the roll bar is in place.... no biggie

                            • continued on the back undershelf


                              and worked on the upper radiator mount


                              now to weld and bolt it in place


                              I plan on gluing it all down when it's done... rivets and epoxy.
