(02.17.15) I was getting a little depressed with the lack of progress that I was making on the bottom of the tub, but is amazing what a collection of 8 hours here and there over the course of a week can do. I got it all torn back apart, liberally applied some weld thru primer and then welded the rear section up.
Next up was one of the mid mount braces, but it needed some work underneath it as the floor was cracked where the seat gets bolted to it. I fixed that up with a patch panel and then welded in the classic enterprises replacement brace. It worked out great. I then took a few minutes to mount up the new Europlate and then moved onto the rear.
After getting some trimming nad reshaping done to where I butchered the front of the tub removing the front brace, I was able to get the new front corner brace into place... again, just like the mid mount section, liberal amounts of weld through primer and a lot of tweaking and twisting and some clecos. I also had to make a patch panel for this section.

I have 2 more classic enterprises brackets/braces to put in and 2 more patch panels to make. Once that is all done, I have 2 small holes to repair and I am onto flipping this over and doing the top side... once that is done, fix up the rear tailgate area and then get it ready for body work!

(02.20.15) I spent a lot of cold nights this week shoveling, roof raking, and plowing... also working on the understructure of the Jeep. Last night a friend came over and helped me flip it over onto the topside so I can start on the floor work so I can finally get to the body work. It is coming together slowly but surely.
