Well we're into phase 2. There is no going back now
Steve and I cut the 4' extension out of the frame. We went over and took some measurements off of his M2. Went back and pushed the frame back together. I had a frame measurement from Steveo of 18'1 3/4" Mine came out at 18'1 11/16"> We had screw jacks and hydraulic jacks under the frame. So we got everything leveled and clamped.
Steve has a friend who is a body and fender guy who does frame work. He is going to come over Monday and give us an expert eye.
Like Top said Until it's melted down or blown to smitherines it's restorable
My welding skills will get a work out next week. Been along time since I welded overhead
Anyway It went really well today, the soga continues
