That's exactly what I'm planning to do. lol

This past week I had some time off from work, and used it to finish my rear frame rail replacement. My boss came and helped me measure the frame so it was within specification, and then I welded in the new section, and also patched some holes. Lastly I coated everything in POR 15 to finish off the repair. Hoping to have some parts arrive so I can reassemble the rear end, and have the truck back on four wheels.

Here are some pics of the progress.

Exciting! I remember redoing Ole Blue, get something cleaned up and painted, then start putting her back together, one piece at a time. Good work.

Thanks guys. I'm taking a break for now because I have a full work load at the body shop, and I'm waiting for parts to arrive to finish the rear end.
