Had a few hours today so got the windshield frame in.

Lot of work to get everything fitting. A pillars had spread when I removed the old dash So new dash wouldn't go in. These things get quite floppy when you remove the dash... actuality when you remove anything.

With the a pillars spread it pulled the center of the nose back about 1". Placed a clamp across the nose and gave it a squeeze. Clamped the center post straight and verified the front was good by placing a piece of plywood across the windshield uprights to make sure they were flat. Once they were flat the dash fitted. Smile

Edit: Should mention I placed large bolts in the wiper holes and it was a big help getting things clamped in the correct spot. Also I added extra steel inside the center post to get a stronger weld.

Dash in. Happy with it.

I replaced the right dogleg 25 years ago. It is not the correct one so i decided to change it. Old one out. Tomorrow I should get the new one installed.

Dog leg fits. Had to push the A pillars forward to make everything line up. Welding in the dash may have deformed them some. It was not much and I could push them forward by just jamming in a stick. I noticed when I tried lifting on the passenger door that the pillar flexed forward.

The dogleg and floor will stiffen things up.

Sandblasted for everything for the dogleg, front and rear floors. Hopfully in the next few days they will all be welded in.

Blaster goes through a lot of tips and valve plates. good thing they are cheap. Put a hole through this one...

Outside of dogleg installed.

Although a little more work, I think I prefer the Klassicfab over the Wolfsburg West dogleg. Will see how getting it finished goes.

Today was motor and transmission day.

Transmission got a new reverse gear and cage, shifting rod bushings, carrier​ bearings, seals and gaskets. Ready to install.

Motor still needs a few things but it's close.

Dogleg done.

Almost missed the holes. Made a press from some things laying around.

I preferred the Wolfsburg West dogleg. Has a better stamping.

Floor fitted. Just needed to make the notches for the a pillars bigger.

Should these dimples for a right hand drive gas peddle be removed?

Floor in tonight. Had to force the front lip farward.

Starting to look like there may be an end to the metal work.

Replaced the seal channel and ground the floor welds. Installed the front vent tube.

Put seam sealer at front and rear of floor before i install the heater tubes. Added some seam sealer to the heater tubes also. They had some quiet large gaps.

Heater tubes installed.

Floors fitted.

OK the floors are shit but I had them... Purchased them 25 years ago when that was likely the best you could get. Thickness is not bad but the stamping is... week Smile Its getting a plywood floor with the camper interior and from underneath it will not look to bad with all the ribs and tubs blocking the view... And really how many people will be crawling around under it anyway. Haha.

I replaced the sub par dogleg but could not justify new floors.

Anyway they are all ready to weld in tomorrow. Last major metal work.

Went better than expected. That was a lot of welds though.

Congrats! You've come along way in less than a year. It's got to fill good to reach that milestone. Very Happy

Thanks.

Yes it feels good. Looking like I will make my deadline. Trip end of June. May not get the outside painted untill next winter but as long as the bottom and inside get paint it will be fine

Harder to decide what's next...

Rebuild the left jack points. I kept forgetting about them. I purchased some from cip1 but they weren't quite right and poor quality.

Started taking the beam apart. The spindles are both great so will just clean them up and change the grease fittings. That saves lots of work. Pins are good put will need new bearings and seals.

Beam apart.

Spring was a pain to remove from one of the arms. Beat it out eventually.

Two broken leafs on the upper set.

Tonight wasn't very productive...

Spent all evening getting a twisted off bolt out. Must have welded on it 20 times. Was about to give up and cut into the post to replace the nut when it started to move back and forth a little. Finally it stripped and I was able to pull it out.

Tapped the hole and it looks fine. Put the door back on and the hinge moves. Others are nice an solid. Support must be cracked inside the post. Looks like I have to cut into it anyway... On the plus side the doors line up great when I push the hinge forward.
