Looks good.Thanks for the pics which give me a good idea what to expect, I'm gonna have to redo my hatch coming up, already did the front. Have the metal just need more time and a mig with a higher than 10% duty cycle. Great for a tack here or there or little body projects but really slows down a bigger project.

When the leafs settle they will get longer. Would recomend doing special shackles or something that can be removed as opposed to spending hours fabbing something that cant really be changed later. Better to have inward or vertical shackle angle than a long shackle angle that might bottom out on the frame.

Looking good man, if you go with thinner panels like we are doing in these pics 54 Ford convertible floor pan | Facebook you can bead the metal to make it much stronger than if its just flat. Then you can use the thinner metal which is much easier to work with and lighter.

Canvas tarps, 2X4s, propane catalytic heater = instant garage/workshop. When I was 14 I had to completely redo the transmission in my Scout in the middle of the snowdrift that I got stuck in. (lesson learned about rocking a stuck vehicle and fixing what you break) Portable garage makes things a lot more comfortable.

atleast he was willing to teach you. my grandfather(rip) and father are both welders, my grandfather was a navy welder and worked for the local poewer authority as a welder.

My dad is also a pro, you think he taught me anything? He taught me how to hold the gun and walked away.

I'm not mad about it, but it woulda saved me a headache.

on to the update,
to show the other side, and how its all tied in to a plate on the bottom, heres another pic

This maybe true, but when imagine how long it will take the rust to eat through the floors now?

Friends dont let friends do DUBS.
