Another weekend, more welding & grinding. I did install the gas tank brackets and I had to cobble up a tool to allow me to clean the metal along the frame rail and trunk pan enough to weld them together. I couldn't reach it with my grinders and sanders. I also removed the rear seat belt brackets and discovered yet more rusted metal. So I cut that out and patched it up.

Did a little welding yesterday. I also drilled some holes in the frame and welded in tubes so I can install/ remove the lower control arms from the welded in perches. I also trimmed the DSE cross member for rear axle clearance and used the trimmed piece to extend the cross member to the end of the driver side frame rails. There was a tiny gap on each side and there was just enough material to finish them off.

Today it rained, and I had to go to work anyhow. Next time I'll do more grinding and it should look a little cleaner...
