August 12, 2010 - Welding, welding, welding.
I'm working my way through the car, finishing up all the half-welded sections and fabricating patches for the various holes I had to cut. Some of that work is pretty complex, too - this section of the driver's footwell is assembled out of 9 pieces, including one that wraps around into that big circular cutout for the steering column. Some of the welding isn't pretty. That's what happens when you're trying to work inside/under a car that's on jackstands and hasn't been bead-blasted to nice clean metal. This was some awkward work. I actually sat on the steering rack for some of it.
The good news is that I'm almost done! I just have to finish welding in part of the transmission tunnel and I can move on.
