What are you going to use for the underside reinforcement?

Great looking work. All the ones I have seen have rust in the same exact place, right where the underneath supports are. I was thinking about replacing mine with fiberglass ones just for that reason. But then I realized that I wont be here for another 60 years so I probably don't need to really worry about it that much...

Ross, I have a used support in great shape if I can get it removed without ruining it. I have also noticed light duty fence posts at Menard's with a similar shape. Hopefully I will get the original one apart.
I also thought about welding 1/8" thick metal strips up under the ribs, but worry about trapping moisture.

Garry if you did fall through. it wouldn't be far! less than a "foot"

I am not sure I will be happy with the repair patch idea, but in my case, I should be able to make it work. I could buy fiberglass also, but I have an 8' Express bed with F1 rear fenders, so I would probably end up needing modification regardless...

All I did was finish welding, grind it down relatively flush, cleaned up the area and shot some ****-can primer on it, for now. Just to help see what it looks like.
I should have spent more time making sure it was absolutely a flush fit. not horrible but not perfect by any means...I will have to spend some time on it yet, but I go out to my big construction project tomorrow, so I am limited on time right now...

Hey Jeff,
It looks great!! It doesn't have to be perfect - it's a 60 year old truck!
Looks like a good job to me. Take it easy over there - It was great seeing you back at it.

Hello Jeff, Great job you are doing. I am excited to see how you route the exhaust. Is that H-pipe set up that you showed earlier similar to the Summit shorty H-pipe for off road mustangs? I am looking at that and wanted to see how it worked in the truck. Thanks and keep up the good work. Steve

Jeff, I have my Jag IFS up and under the frame, pretty much ready to weld in. Question: Did you use stick or wire? I'm not seeing how I can get my wire nozzle down in between the outside of the frame and the cross-member.
