Frame almost ready

Today I got the frame sanded down and primed on both sides.

I primed the rear crossmember.

And the bottom of the tub.

Lastly, I permanently bolted (had to cut about 3/8″ off the carriage bolts) and welded the rear crossmember to the frame and touched up the primer.

So hopefully tomorrow I can get a couple of coats of OD on the bottom of the tub and frame. If it dries fast enough I’ll fit them together and stitch weld them together. I also need to extend the front angle up by about 1/4″ so that it is the same height as the seam of the patch panel. That way I wont have to do any metal finishing on that seam (on the outside anyway).
