First I needed to get the cross sills level. I removed the carriage bolts only to find that they were in round holes. Soooo I fabricated some square holes to replace them.

I also have an issue with a sagging left front corner so I plan to weld an angle to each side.

Ok now it is my turn with the Bondo. Note not quite a just enough to fill in low spots and no pop rivets to cover up.

A quick test fit and off to get some primer before too much rust.

Since I had all those pop rivet holes I drilled them out to and added some additional holes. This panel had the lower edge removed so there was no lip for the floor boards. I cut I piece of 1 by 1/16 wall to length and split it to an angle. If you have ever split square tube you will know that it will bend on you. I used my shrinker /stretcher and straightened it out. (No photos on this I will add photos when I do the side angles. The same thing happened to them.) I got every C clamp I had and clamped everything to my welding bench and welded it all together.
