Tonight there were some parts to pick up, so I only managed to finish up the welds on the channel from last time. Next up is butchering the rusted parts of the channels, so I also reinforced the body with some steel bars.

With very good help from Fürsten, I managed to get a good start on the rear left heater channel/inner fender tonight. It's funny how you always have to cut out more metal than you anticipated in the first place.... The end result looked quite good, I have to say. Still some more to finish it up, but it kept me smiling all the way home :-)

One of the last evenings before new years eve, I spent an fruitful afternoon in the 6v garage toghether with Oval57. After welding the rear bumber mounts, we separated the chassis and body, mounted the body in oval57's "body-roll" and tipped the -50 upside down. The welding will now be much easier....and a good thing that is, because the lower side of the heater channels looks a little "moth-eaten".....
