More floors

The floor panels are in, but I stil have some clean up work to do with the stuff underneath. Spent a couple hours on that today. Hoping to wrap that up tomorrow and will share pics then. 

Running time ~76.5 hrs.

Weld some, grind some

Tonight I got the patch for the step welded in and the welds ground down. I think it will hold. I haven't yet welded it to the floor because I want to level the floor before I put in the stringers and weld the floor to the outer rocker.  

Once all that is done, I can move on the the dogleg and b pillar. 

1.5 hrs in the shop tonight.

This post from Sunday Feb 15, 2015:

Got about two hours in the garage yesterday. POR15'ed the floor patch and welded in and painted a small piece in the inner rocker. 
Baby steps. Running time at about 72 hrs. 

Three Days Straight

Well, this is unheard of. I actually got to work on Hanky three days in a row. Monday was the third and although I got slowed down by migraines (ugh), I did manager to weld in the floor and cut the piece for the face of the step. It's nice to actually see progress! 

Oops. Blurry pic. I'll post a better on in the next installment.  

Running time ~75 hrs.

Etch n Sketch

Progress has been slow of late but I got a few hours in the garage today. I cut out a small area of rot in the inner rocker and sprayed the inside with inhibitor while I have access and cut a patch to weld in. 

Then I washed and laid out the floor panel, covering it with acid soaked paper towels to etch it for painting with POR15. I'll do that tomorrow morning. I hoping to get the little patch and the floor panel both welded in tomorrow. That will feel like real progress.
