Looking good, I love the detail you put into your work.

I've been staring at this pic trying to figure out what's going on, but I can't see it. It looks like you cut the bottom of the door off then added another piece just like it. It's probably just the angle, but I don't get it.

That's the door cut down 1.75" capped welded up and sanded.

This is the added piece.

I forgot to post a few pics of how I did the rocker replacements.
I had to make a few cuts to fit it tight to the body. The tapped hole is for the stock seat belts bolt. Also drilled a hole for locating the rear seat.

Striping the under coat off the frame can only be topped by removing the stock mounting brackets as worst part of the build process. Cut some more sheet metal out of the way and removed the stock spring hangers. Primed and ready the stiffeners to be welded in.


And since I was already making a mess I sanded the 9" down so I could start picking away at welding my truss from ruff stuff on.

I'd like to but I'm running out of time on this so that will be a project for another day.

It's pretty easy to do, and a lot easier to do before you put it all together.
Judging by the work you are doing I'm sure you have the tools right there. It would only take you a couple hours at this point, just something to think about.

Looked at the links in your build and at what you did. I think I will give it a go.
