09-18-2011 03:22 PM Trunk Floor and Rear Window
Finished the patch in the trunk floor. While I was back there with the torch, I located and filled some pin holes around the trunk floor extension I installed back in November (see entry #341).

The black piece is the spare tire hold down bracket. It will be located and welded in soon.

The rear window glass was removed. Got it out with no chips or breaks just in case it will clean up. These things are expensive.

With the glass out, the mounts for the rear seat belt shoulder harnesses can be installed.

Just a few more items and the body can go on the rotisserie.

I thought I had fixed all of the trunk floor. After I got the battery box installed I found a couple of pin holes in the area between the reinforcing channels. I knew the area was pitted, just didn't know it was that bad.

The area to remove was drawn out and cut. A panel was made and trimmed to fit. It is about 3/4 welded in. Tin Star time. Didn't get all the welding done before it was time to go eat tacos!

Once I was satisfied the seat bottom was properly positioned, the catches were finish welded. Today was not good looking weld day!

The reinforcing plate for the passenger side shoulder belt was installed. All anchor points for the front belts are now installed.

Both lower B pillar mounts have been installed.

The other back seat bottom catch was tacked in place. Both of them are now installed. They are tacked in just in case they need to be moved later.

My wife came out and sat in the passenger seat so I could locate the upper B pillar mount location for the shoulder belt. Fortunately, the best location is at the same height as the driver side. Next time I get to work on it I will modify the mount/reinforcing plate and get it installed.

Cold front came through. Temps are down about 20 degrees from last week. What a relief.

The B pillar mount/reinforcing plate was modified to fit the B pillar. The original is in the middle of the first photo. The modified version is on the left. On the right is the floor reinforcing plate. The second photo shows the plate installed. The welding could have looked better, but it has good penetration.

The final photo shows both of the reinforcing plates for the seat belts next to the hump have been rosette welded in and the mounts bolted down.
