    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.

    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

    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)...

    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

    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

    Groovy!! :-)

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

    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
