Yes! Welding has happened! My friend’s father came by on Tuesday and weleded on both of the frame repair plates, one of the cross bars and tack welded on all the body mounts. The only other thing to do is weld on the reinforcing plates on the rear ends of both frame rails.
Then after I get the body mounts from 4wd Hardware I’m going to sit the new body down on the frame and see if everything is in the right place. Then the body comes back off and my welder comes back and puts the body mounts down for good. Then it’s a trip to the sand blaster and a coat of POR 15.
