"Yes, I studied 3 years at Juliard, and caught aligators in the Congo, but nothing compares to prepping a Scirocco for the GRM challange.  That's why I only breath gaseous metal and CO/Ar mixture from the finest welds."  Just kidding about the music school..heh

...And this is where I set myself on fire while welding...I was wondering why my ankle was getting so hot even though it was far away from the weld.  Word to the wise:  hot slag travels.

It's pretty much done.  Add harness bar, cut a bit away from the rearward bracing, and bolt the plates though the floor.
