Well it warmed up enough and had some time off, so I got some Mutt work done. :D

Anyways I got the battery floor replacement cut to shape. I used a under body repair panel to replace the missing one. I had picked up a replacement channel from D & L BENSINGER last summer. Fitted it and now I just have to weld it all up.

Well got some more done. Shut up Tom. GTS

Anyway the passenger area is done. I also knocked the bondo off the fenders and beat them back into shape and filled some missing areas with some sheet metal.

That looks good! I am glad to see you have time for some fun stuff instead of baby-sitting for this bunch of over-age juvenile delinquents! :D ---bil

I could be wrong but should the areas i have circled have valves in them. They look like sockets from the angle in the photo.
