  • Thanks Justin all is clear now , that's a nice repair to have made so easy to have just filled a few holes and not realised what you were covering up ! Looks really strong now!

      Thanks again Roy, It was getting closer little by little...

  • Gusset install with further wall preparation details.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9421.jpg Views:	0 Size:	575.2 KB ID:	113344 Wall back in to make sure they fit together.
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9422.jpg Views:	0 Size:	565.5 KB ID:	113345 Wall is allowed to come in where it needs to be with the top of this flange swooping in and laying in against it nicely. All set with no more changes to this piece needed other than some weld dressing. Side note: The twin tack weld detail at the weather strip channel added. All the original gussets received two along here; these replicated right over top of the originals. Back to panel wall prep.

    • Last of the prep work along the top of the new closing wall.
      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9434.jpg Views:	0 Size:	517.1 KB ID:	113349 Excess trimmed and adding in the 90 for the eventual wrap now.
      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9435.jpg Views:	0 Size:	523.8 KB ID:	113350 All set. Been a long road but the entire top run of this wall is now actually ready to be installed.
      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9433.jpg Views:	0 Size:	509.8 KB ID:	113351 Onto a bit more vertical flange correction.
      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9425.jpg Views:	0 Size:	481.9 KB ID:	113352 A touch more lower flange trimming and shaping..
      Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_9426.jpg Views:	0 Size:	521.7 KB ID:	113353 and plug weld hole punching but its getting dangerously close to final install time.

      Thanks for looking!
