Shit...Don't let my girlfriend see that!! She already has a Hello Kitty sticker on the back of the 110...Granted, she is wearing a scowl on her face while donning a Punisher T-Shirt and packing
an AK-47!! 😜. It's also technically her rig...I just maintain and drive it!!

Both sides where the seatbox and brackets to the frame attach were all sorts of corroded. Cutting out the blown out metal and will weld in new material. Need to do this on both sides

Got some the radiator hoses and intake done. Intake will change when I add the intercooler down the road.

Thanks Ed - little gutted as I thought the tub would be a straight swap and the more I uncovered the worse the condition was.

But I feel like I know where all the corroded parts are know and kind of have a plan to fix. I am going to try and get a patch done each day and take my time on it.

Got one of the front corners done where it attaches to the seatbox and frame. Not sure if I posted a picture of the before shot.

Yeehaw - :rollseyes

At least I am working with clean metal but this is going to take me a while to weld.

I admire your patience for making those aluminum repairs. Replacing sections of metal like that is time consuming, tedious, frustrating, but in the end very rewarding. Good work

2.5" mandrel bent pre-bent all the way thru. The DP is stock Merc so metric and a little smaller.

I have a Magnaflow straight muffler - but it has V clamps on either side in case I want to weld up a straight piece.

Thanks - what kills me is I have only gotten blips of time to do this work so I can't ever get into a groove. And the 90 degree temps in the garage aren't fun either.

I see a lot of flaws look wise but for the most part satisfied as it will be as strong if not stronger than stock. Wish I had a bigger shop with the proper tooling!

Lots of clamps and straight bars to try and keep this floor somewhat straight while welding.
