Default Re: Son's '73 ghia - a distraction

So I didn't make my Friday deadline. But I did make progress.

Rear end back together

I was waiting for some copper backplates to fix these

There are three of these seams that weren't done from the repro guys. I tried to do one without anything behind it, and got this

a couple big holes. So, I decided to wait for the backplate. They came in today, but I didn't get home from work until 9 pm and I have to be back at work at 5 am. I just wasn't feeling it.

I am also going to fix this. Welding up the passenger side, I got a little crooked. So I plan on cutting a relief cut in the "dog leg" and getting it to line up. Then weld in place and fill in my relief cut.

This was what I was trying to make room for. Now the garage is uber crowded!

Now this is right in front of the pan that I am trying to work on....I am going to have to move some more stuff around!

Anyway, I am waiting on a suspension leaf stack for the front, then it will be ready to be put back together. Seems the PO took some leaves out, or the mice took a couple of leaves for a teeter totter or something!
