Been pretty cold. saturday I cut out my failed 1st attempt. cut out 1 more hidden rust area on the jeep I missed before. then I trimmed 2 edges of the new pan and have it sitting in place.
I picked up some zinc primer to coat everything that overlaps(you can spot weld through it) but not sure how Im going to get my garage to 50 degrees to apply it. I have a nice electric heater that just heats a small spot and it doesnt do much to the whole garage temp. cold today but highs will be in 30's starting tomorrow (40 thursday)so thats when I get back at it.
For now I might go predrill the holes, and finish grinding the spatter off the floor from the previous attempt.
The rest of the battle plan is zinc prime>plug weld>seam sealer>primer on top and bottom>undercoat on bottom. and later this year monstaliner will be going on the whole inside of tub. have a few more spots to fix later.
took this after the first trim but before final. 2nd pic is the heater

balmy 34 degrees today. So I made a little progress on the floor. Drilled some holes around the new panel, trimmed away another inch of the old floor on 1 side, it was rough from cutting out the old.
Did some more welding on the side patch and have that done. Well not done but done enough to proceed.
I traced the new pans overlap on the old floor, and 36 gritted all the paint off up to that line.
left heater on the metal for a few minutes and layed down some of that zinc primer that I can plug weld through and called it a night.
not worried about overspray at this point since it all will have liner on it come warm weather.
I have a video of what its looking like at the moment also.




Warning, bad language in this video. I didnt realize I curse so much. Watch at your own risk lol

Heres a preview. got a good start last night and its going ok. still playing with welder settings, have the wire speed way fast since some of them arent filling up before it starts getting too hot and close to blowing through.
got a big snow coming in tonight then some nasty cold. maybe ill get back out there today.

Ran out of welding wire, I had already ordered more just waiting on delivery. only have a few more plugs to "refill" then its time to seam seal it.

Really been thinking about taking out the TC and bringing it in the house to put on the SYE. It just doesnt sound fun to do on a cold garage floor. I wont be driving it much if at all before the swapping happens so not worried about that.

Also really thinking about buying a Tatton driveshaft off ebay for 225, instead of paying 35 and 150 to chop/balance. just to end up with an old used shaft

Can't work on the floor so I started taking the tc out.
Drained, removed both driveshafts, skid plate off. 4 of the 6 bolts holding it to trans off. Speedo cable out.
All that's left is linkage and those last 2 bolts. I was numb so quit there. Going pretty well, quite surprised!
