Tackle it a little bit at a time, you'll get there... It'll need to be a labour of love though!

Day 14 & 15

Welded new back plate to Off Side axle mount.

Near Side axle mount currently with new axle mount plate tacked in place just need to do the seam weld, grind back and coat with rust prevention.

Off Side axle mount currently with new axle plate welded in place and already seam welded, just need to grind back do any more welding and coat with rust protection.

The Off Side axle mount was in alot better condition than the Near Side even though the Off Side has the fuel filler kneck on that side that was a bit weird to me anyway the major stuff is nearly out of the way i think.
