Welded out and painted the rear axle housing this weekend. Took about 6 hours of welding and about 4 lbs of wire. Welded on a tie down tab. Getting warmed back up with my welding skill. Been a few years since I have done very much. Ran out of Blue Demon Wire and switched to some Lincoln wire and got a whole lot less spatter and cleaner beads.

Welded out, primed, and painted.

And some backwards progress. Had to pull the B-pillar on the passenger side so I could fully weld the roofline bar. The driverside roofline bar is all 1 piece. The passenger I messed up one of my offsets, so I had to cut and sleeve it to the proper angle.

Hope to get the rear part of the chassis welded out next. Then I will work on the front part of the chassis and front axle.
