Finished installing a new quarter on the passenger side of my Machine now I've moved to the driver's side. Sadly it's much worse.




Anyone been in a series 10 chassis this deep before?

Don't love rust but it's a fact of life in Iowa.......... that's why my cars get parked the very first time they slime the roads with their car destroying slime.

Looks like some fabrication is needed here - at least it's in an area where you can replace structure and not be concerned about exacting appearance.

Got some updated pics of the repair work so far.

More rot removal & replacement.







Fabricated a replacement section from the structure side of a sill panel I cut from a parts car 20+ years ago.





Should have it burned in this week.

Nice work, Rebel.  Wish I had any kind of skill at fabrication and welding like that.  Thumbs Up
