Finished welding in the battery box floor and getting this area in paint. I "harvested" the brass washer and bolt from my original floor to give the new floor a little more original look.

You're the MAN Trevor. I never mastered welding, upholstery or painting. Actually I've never mastered anything, and done 30+ cars, but nothing like that. CONGRATS !!! ……….Jim.

Trevor, great work you are doing. Very motivational. Welding and fabrication for me is therapeutic. Though some days it might not feel like it.

Last pics for now. The floor is cleco’d in place ready for spot welding. I’m going to continue on with the rear torsion area, longitudinals and front door jamb closing panels before I weld in the floor for good.

Thanks for looking. If anyone has questions please ask.

Toe board supports spot welded in prior to final install so I don’t have to plug weld in a tight area. Sparks = No fun!

Nice work. Don't forget the crack in image 96015CD6 etc. Where the original diagonal joins the chassis.

There once was a young man named Trevor.
To restore an old Porsche was his endeavor.
Although it came in pieces three,
it didn't faze him, you see,
for at welding he proved exceedingly clever.
Some days it just isn’t worth the hassle of chewing through the restraints......

....It was the least I could do. Great work on the car. You're doing something that I would never attempt.
