Looks like its going to take some recreation.
I have a new passenger side to design from.
The primary question being where to cut.
Then where to tie the new dual layers back into the old.

Oh yeah it would help if I could figure out the depth on the spot weld cutter. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

I just switched to the HF cutter and drill bits. They work pretty well.

Don't really know. In talking to the folks at Better Engineering. They think its a 200HD. No serial numbers on it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
I've got the motors back up and running. I'm going to order two new heating elements, new contactor and new door seals.

The plan. Just plan on using it when I need to clean parts. That's why I wanted to get the wheels working. Push it in the corner when not at use. They say the detergent will hold up for 6 months. Then add a little detergent to strength the solution.

Just kind fell into this one. Surfing Craigslist. A guy was getting out the the transmission rebuilding business. Bought for $500. I'll have another $400 parts and paint. I'm a tool/gadget whore.
This is the only way I could ever afford to own one.

Its going to be a tough road.

With the over welding we did when we first put in on the road ten years ago. And the fact it was a front clip repair somewhere back in the day. The longs are pretty tore up.

Haven't quite figured out how I'm going to tackle the lower half of the driver long. I saw Jeff Hail mention using the top half of a passenger long. I held it up. Hmm. Maybe.

Worst part. I still couldn't find all the spot welds on the outer long tab that goes behind the body next to the jack point hole. Part of that debri you see on the left side is still part of the outer long. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

Here's the long all gutted. Didn't have to bugger up the heater tubes too bad.
They didn't ever plan on taking those heater tubes out when they designed the assembly line process.

I love the front door post one the best. Welded on the backside......
The engine compartment I just use the air chisel with a sharp edge.

Attached Image

Here's the fine craftsmanship I found in the front clip install sometime in its life.

Attached Image

Now I'll have some pondering how I'm going tidy that up.
Seems odd that the back side patch had little or no rust. Just some surface stuff.

Looking for some advice I guess ........

I know ......................... I have 2 of them.
Let's just say, I'll learn alot.

I just hate throwing things away. I've already crushed one. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
Some of it is, that it was my oldest son's high school car.
And I just love taking things apart and putting them back together.
But this is kind of taking it to the extreme.

And I've always taken on the hardest project first.

It's my complete disconnect.

I've managed supermarkets for 30 years.
I spend 50 plus hours per week with 100 employees, 15,000 customers and 600 vendors.

Now that I'm getting all fired up. I think I'm going to forgo the PCA autocross tomorrow and continue with figuring out how I'm going to recreate that structure on that driver side long.
