We made a side trip out to Hickory to drop in on the build. Looks better in person. Andy gave us the guided tour.
Thanks again. Cheers

Build is looking great. I'm finding some inspiration for my own project.

Just had a question for ya because I'm in the middle of doing the pans on my car. Why did you chose to paint before welding in the new pans? My plan was to get the old floors completely out, media blast everything, weld in new pans, seam sealer, paint. Is there an advantage to doing it differently?

Stock pans on a stock chassis would go on first. This chassis layout requires pans to go on last. It's tricky and it's one of the reasons why it's taking so long to build.
Our pans are in 10 pieces not including seat frames and battery holder. Stay tuned to see it come together. Thanks by the way.

Ready to fit the floors for welding. They will fit perfect due to being test fit 1000 times.
