Frame Rail Straightening

Part #6

The body shop welded the front supports to the frame rails after they straightened the rails to be sure they fit properly and to check the fitment of the rest of the sheet metal and  bumper parts.  I removed the bolted on parts and went over all the new welds.  I improved some of the welds and I added several welds to ensure all the parts were secure.

I also ground down any welds that will be exposed to view to improve their appearance.

I finished the driver's side except for plugging the hole I made near the shock mounts.  I used a green etching primer on the bare spots.  Then I used a grey primer-sealer to cover the areas affected by the welding heat and the green etching primer.

This is the final result on the driver's side.

This was more work to do than I could do in one day.
