There was a small section of the rear chassis cross member that had a chunk cut out of it. I have no idea why it was butchered like this but it’s been bugging me for a while. Here is an old photo of the butchered piece prior to me restoring the chassis.
I ground out the butchered section to make it square and welded in a nice little patch of angle. It came up pretty well once I tidied the welds up and put some cold gal primer on it.
I’m hoping to have the pod sheeted and mounted to the truck tray by Christmas.
