        For 50 years I have been cutting metal and fabricating stuff but always had to find someone to weld them up for me. Now I can attempt to take on that step as well. Not sure I am ready to start welding steering shafts or suspension mount points just yet but it is very handy to have a mig in the shop.

          Still some details to work out with the condenser location as it will required modifications to the hood latch support brackets.
          Then I need to finalize all the plumbing. I welded up most of the holes in the firewall so I need to figure out new entry points for the heater hoses and a/c lines.

                I still need to weld back in the support gusset to the modified one and then do all the same stuff to the other one..
                I just noticed that ford didn't make a left and a right bracket! I am sure that saved them $0.20 a truck


                However, I suspect it will be a little bit before I get back to this project

                Seems I have also modified some tendons!
                The original cut was straight across but after the surgeon put the pieces back together I have some additional decorations!
                At this moment it time, I am hoping to ha be out of this for Key West in May
