With no gas for the welder,I started to make the panels for the trans tunnel and floor.Got going pretty good,then ran out of sheet metal!Some days it seems that projects just are not supposed to move forward.Any way,got some of the panels made and held in place temporarily.
Got to work on the exhaust,just far enough along to feel pretty good about the progress,when the mig gas runs out.So this is as far as the exhaust got today. I will eventually trim the exhaust tip,maybe in to a slash cut,but I want to wait till I get the bed on first.
Decided I should get some of the work buttoned up under the cab while the floor is still out,I hate welding over my head.Besides,Im not sure if I can snake the exhaust thru with the floor installed.Got started on the boxing plates,muffler mods and exhaust install.
Got the front axle cross member and upper shock mounts welded in place.Still need to box the frame and build a front frame extention to mount the radiator.
Also got the wish bone mount,front cab mount,and exhaust pass thru welded in.Again,everthing still needs boxed in.
