markharmon today is d-day. i plan to cut my frame just under the driver seat area. donor piece is ready to go in. just have to fit it once old is removed.

martinez53 nice paint job

95 frame fix

I too ended up with a lot more frame damage then expected. I have fixed the rear end of both frame rails. Lf side has some 1/8 steel welded to original frame. RT side was total replacement with donor frame end. Now I'm on to the driver side between leafsprings. Can anyone tell me what to expect when I cut the frame rail between the rear and front leafspring brackets? I have a donor frame piece to go between the brackets. While scoping out that part I found that the frame is bad from the spring bracket to just about the shock mount. That's my other delimia. Probably end up using a combo of 1/8 steel and donor frame.
