Today I'm building the rear frame rails,,, I want to get this tacked in before removing the old rails...

I will say this... If you don't have one of these Metal Saw's,,, You don't know what your missing.. This Saw is worth EVERY dollar you spend on it.. Nice clean cut's,,And will cut metal like it's cutting butter...

Yes it's in very good shape..

I almost hated to cut it up..
Not really... It's going to look very nice when it's all done..

Yes the C-cab has been giving me this dirty look...
