My next challenge, front door posts. I'll have to brace
this area pretty good before I remove the body from the frame. When the front doors
are opened they fall about 2 inches. The floor just inside of the door post areas
are rusted out and flex from the weight of the doors.

Bracing the front door posts for the rotisserie.
My son Andy and his friend Matt helped pulled
the body off the frame and mount it on the rotisserie. It went very easy and I didn't
get any flex so I must have braced the weak floor enough.
After mounting the body
on the rotisserie I pressure washed the frame. There was a lot of caked on gunk on
the differencial and front suspension parts. I didn't find any more bad spots on the
frame, all of the rust damage seems to be confined to the front crossmember.
