(02/15/2016) We are back in business! I finall moved over the Scrambler into the workshop. I had been buying panels along the way... basically one a month when I could afford it. Once it was moved over, I cleaned up all the dust and grime off of it and started to dissasemble it a bit.
It basically needs every panel replaced. So, after reading a lot on the forums about horror stories of the body collapsing up and not being square when done, I decided to "over-brace" it to make sure it wouldn't do that. During this time, I also acquired a rotissiere and that is making life a whole lot easier to work on the body without having to call for backup to flip it over constantly.
Being able to spin the body allows for seeing the braces underneath and allow for cutting and not hurting anything. I am also then able to drill out the spot welds, which is very nice. I made very good progress doing a couple hours a night. It wasn't too cold through January, so that was nice. As you can see, the floor fitting was the last piece of the puzzle here.
