slow progress...

lots of plating done.



the side of the unirail and the floor were plated with 10ga, then tied together with the 2x2 angle for ease of welding.

the filler neck slot through the unirail was replaced with a piece of 3.5" .120 wall DOM which was welded into the frame plates.

the shackle box was also fully plated

Work looks good, but why are you cutting so much out? Are you stretching the rear out a bit?

no real progress... working on getting the interior enclosed again. I keep changing my mind on how to do it. I decided to add some more cross bracing and gusseting.

I did get some of the front section done and some gussets done....

my welding is getting better... so I'm gonna show this pic off... I won't show any other welds because they suck. :roflmao:
