Back at it. Slowly...
Cut out more rust and fitted in more inner rocker.
I'm working directly under the quarter panel patch I made.
Made the command decision to keep the rear boxed mount as it's about 80 percent solid and I can easily replace what isn't.
Plug welded in the outer skin then had to stop as my nozzle lost it's insulation and it was the last one I had.
Once this is all welded in I will trim the bottom edge like I did on the DS.
Off to the suppliers tomorrow.
Not exciting but it's progress.

Glad to see your back at it. Overhead rot repair is a pain. It's tough to keep slag and spatter out of the cup. Sometimes you can pick it out with a screw driver or hooked pick. Sometimes it melts itself in to it so hard it won't come out. Keep going and it will all get done.

Picked up the correct welding nozzle today and just as I was getting ready to head out I got a call to come in for my 2nd Vaccine shot.
This was for the one I had to cancel last week when I was ill.
I also noticed that I burnt some holes in my liner that holds the fake leg on.
My welding apron slipped of my lap and the sparks went through a pair of insulated Carhartt overalls and put about 6 holes in the liner.
No wonder my leg wanted to fall off when I stood up.

Glad you're feeling better and back at it Torchie,

I can honestly say you are the only guy I know with the problem of burning holes in your fake leg liner and your leg tried to fall off!!

Stay after brother.

Not in the mood to weld today so I got under the car and took some measurements for the 2 middle body mount pads on the PS.
I will cut them out tomorrow and hopefully get them Both pads welded in.
Started to strip out the donor S-10.
DS door off.
It's been off before. The upper hinge pins was in upside down.
PS has been untouched. That's for tomorrow.
Keep on keeping on.....

I like tearing things apart. S10 hinges wore out a lot of bushings. I changed a few.

Those hinges were not the best design GM ever came up with. I sold the doors off of my donor to a kid with some bad hinges on his truck. I had to show him how to change the locks out. He thought he needed the key with the doors.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
