06-29-2004 08:04 AM Frame restoration
What you may have noticed in the previous entry, was a piece of steel clamped to the bottom of the frame. The whole lower section of the frame was toast. I had to remove the bottom on most of the front section. (Its call a Torque Tube frame.) The lower section is spotwelded to the upper section. I had to drill out the spot welds, grind it smoth, replace areas that were ravaged by rust. As the frame was spot welded, and I don't have aspotwelder that would do almost 1/4" thick materials, I had to plug weld it.

06-29-2004 07:56 AM Time for the stripper...
Time to strip down the front end and check out the carnage that 65 years of rust can do. Upon removal of the front clip, I found that the frame had some bad spots. The pic shows a patch where I cut the frame back to good metal,and installed a patch of .100" steel.
