Been busy getting my Squareback ready for drving this summer and for the VW shows in the area, so I haven't been doing too much on the Lead Sled. I did spend a few hours over the last couple of days starting to get the inner structure for the new rear end in place. I welded in some cross bracing and have started fitting the package tray sheet metal. Here are a few progress pictures.

I want to add a couple diagonal braces on the rear roof support. I also need to make the new center section of the package tray and get it welded in.

Small steps, but steps in the right direction.
