Was able to do some welding today, little more body panel adjustment and fixing few holes in the floor. Guy before me had a bunch of cleaning equipment, and didnt know how to just make one hole to bolt things, he made a bunch. Took some pieces form what I cut out and patched the floor for support and keep things out...

Also, cut and shortened all three fuel lines, changed all o-rings, fuel filter and re-mounted fuel tank.
Fuel side is done...

Cut the exhaust up, going to try and re-build tomorrow, hopefully I can get it to fit, then weld it back up.

Lastly, hopefully I can get the ABS and all brake lines re-mounted without having to re-size too much.

Then hopefully be driving this thing home so I can get going on the air bags, shocks in the rear and all the welding that still needs to be done...

crazy

Well, its drivable now. Brakes and all ABS are done....
Took so long trying to put it all back. Took forever to bleed the brakes.
They are good enough for now

All I need is the exhaust and I can drive it home
