Re: 69 ranchero restoration

Next we had to rebuild the rear portion of the front frame rail and tie it in to the new torque box.

The inners originally had a large access hole for the factory spot weld and assembly tooling, much like the interface of the inner rocker to torque box. I eliminated that for strength purposes. Here I'm fitting a backer plate for my final inner frame plate to attach to along with the butt weld.

There we go, nice and solid.

Next is rebuilding the dogleg support for the trans X-member. We already did it, I just don't have the photos uploaded yet.
