Although the majority of bodywork is in good condition, there are a few panels that need attention. One of these is the driver side cab floor support panel. This provides a section for attaching the floor panels to the main bodywork. It goes from the step into the cab through to the front by the radiator.
It has a few holes and rather than trying to repair in situ, thought best to remove and replace the complete panel. This was no easy task and fortunately Josh did most of the hard work getting the rusted bolts out. Some of the previous welding repairs had to be un-done to remove the panel, as they’d welded the repairs to this panel.
I’m glad Josh suggested we repair this panel now, because it would have been extremely difficult to remove. Hopefully should be easy to get one made up, or even have a go myself.
