Finished up the welding on this body mount tonight. I still have to trim it, grind the welds, and clean it up. I did not expext this one to be so challenging bit it has several offsets and joggles that were very difficult to reproduce.

I also went to Tractor Supply and picked up everything I hope I need to bolt the cowl down and shim it left and right. Once that is done and the doors are aligned again I can install the inner rocker (after I make it) for the drivers side. After it is in I can install the mounts I am making and bolt them in.

LOL. Someday I get to make floor pans.
