Thanks Guys, I got a little done over the last few days. Added a 4" angle iron rear cross member to the frame to allow removal of the old spare tire cross member. This will give me the room needed for the 17 gallon fuel cell that is on order. I then added the missing boxing plates between the trans cross member and the drive shaft hoop. Also replaced the fish plates on the outside of the frame as they looked horrible.











And a short video. https://youtu.be/mwe_Mxu5ydU

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

What's your plan for the shocks?

New shock position, after re-reading Mercury Mac's reply a while back I just had to change them. I had to make some clearance on the inside rear of the C notch to clear the shock, but I will weld a patch plate in the opening and it should be as strong as ever.
Ya think this will work better?
