I'm working on the sills for my 1970 Traveller. Basically, everything needs doing.
I have all the repair panels that ESM do. I have a full 1/2 floor with the inner sill step fitted
I've welded a brace across the door. The rusty stuff at the bottom is all that is holding the sill in place I didn't put it there.
I've started to cut away the floor leaving in what's left of the cross member and I've cut away the underfloor 1/4 panels at the front and back (they weren't doing much good anyway!)
I thought I'd work in the following order
- Carry on cutting away the floor
Cut out the inner sill step leaving the outer boxing plate in place (it's virtually out anyway theres about 2 inches of reasonable metal holding it in place)
tack weld in all around the floor and tack the A & B Posts to the inner sill step
Cut away the bottoms of the A & B Post (they've rusted to oblivion anyway)
Cut out and replace the boxing plate and the rear boxing sill extension
plug weld the new boxing plate to the inner sill step
weld in B Post repair section at the bottom
Start on the front inner whee larch so that I can then get a solid basis to weld up the front of the boxing plate and inner sill step
come back to the A post and the door gap when that's done
Do I need to brace further?
Thanks once again
