    So I needed a new section of floor, so I went to Affordable Auto Wrecking in Calgary and found what I needed!

    I stripped it away from the tub with a bad @ spot weld remover tool I bought.









    To make sure the sections were strong once welded I made a internal mending plate to support the area being welded.



    Used dimple pliers to make a landing for the new panel to go in

    What a great source. Around here we only have one wrecking yard with TJs in it, and they want new prices for used. They say it is "vintage"

    Started burning it in











    Yes I know some of the welds are a bit big and droopy but its no fun upside down,.. I will grind them inspect for any porosity and re weld if required,..

    Next step prep for filler and Rhino liner on the lower sections

    The goal is to get it back on the road and into a new home. I repair them like I may keep them but alas the Alberta chapter of the Jeep rehab center must put them back into the wild.
