No kidding... will sure be solid no matter what. It is threads like this that reinforce my desire to learn to weld.
I think I will find a beginners course locally next year.
hit up the local scrap/ wrecking yard for some stock. Evilbay or craigslist for a good stick welder and a oxy-acettline cuttin torch. all you will ever need. All I use at work. oh and you can never have enough harbor freight 41/2 in grinders.
Cafinaholics Anomous me and anyone that has way too much coffee in a day!
And yes I can't spell... Live!
for all intents and purposes, the passy floor is all welded in in the front.
behind the front seat mount is all welded in on both sides in exception to a tiny like 2''x4'' plate by the seat belt buckle bolt on the passy side, and like finish beading along the back.
driverside floor needs one plate in the corner, i just didnt get to it, i like to bounce around so i dont get burnt out.
did a little work on the back floors too
annndddd my holy grail. screw folding the rear corners, and dealing with pop rivets, sealer, and other amatuer methods. do it right, do it once.. profit.
the outside plate is 3/16th's tied into the other 3/16th that goes past shackle to shackle on the rear, also tied into a plate on the outside and the 14guage floor. its straonger than it ever would have been.
nay sayers can fold 2 pieces of 24 gauge all they want, but i can destroy a stock floor with a rubber mallet.
yeah its fn pouring. Cool. Maybe I'll work on my back bumper. Someone with smittybuilt d rings wanna messure one for me so i know how wide i have to make the d ring mounts? I'm looking for that perfect fit.
