A little clean up, some rearranging, and the body is on the move!



taking it slow............



trying to figure out how to lift it, and get that big rolly cart outta the way.



Meanwhile, the other half showed up (not the one painting!)



offloaded and in the same place for the first time in months.



chasing out the holes where the plywood connects to the body.





next step, install the wooden floor pieces, and get the frame into position....

Starting this morning on the floor boards. I decided to leave the middle one out for better access.



They bolt in, up, down, and all around.



once on the ground, you'll never see that blue paint.



you can see the cross sills installed here.




from underneath - squirted that last rusty spot black.







I put all the mounting bolts down from the top, and secrured the rubber mount pads with o-rings, instead of fighting to keep them in place.

It's time.




Buddy Keith stopped by with the liquid reinforcements - he also helped me move the chassis into position.






for some reason I like this shot a whole bunch.



Drop it right on there, give'r!




closer......



does this fit?



closer!!!!!



on!



finally - it fits OK! - had to drill out one mounting hole by 1/2 a screw dia.




how does this thing bolt up?



Lots + lots of bolts, mostly carriage bolts - easy.

pushing it back so we can lift up by the frame.










pushed out, aand back in on the other side, Need that bay for work tomorrow!

what a difference!





it's finally starting to look like something!!!
