    The piece that supported the back of the leaf spring was pretty thin on this side. Luckily the frame rail is solid. So I needed some heavy sheet metal to rebuild this piece and I had just had some VFDs for some 75hp chilled water pumps changed at work. The old VFD cabinets are really heavy gauge steel so I saved one from the dumpster and am using pieces of it to rebuild the spring support. Can’t beat the price and it’s twice as thick as the original bracket.

    Free is a great price, and thicker surely can't hurt there. Nice work!

    Closing in on finishing this corner, just need to rebuild the structure for the lower door hinge. I cut this corner out of another van; it’ll need a little massaging but it’s workable.

    Thanks! I got the support post rebuilt today with some 2” x 3” tubing and got the corner tacked on. Now to do a little repair work on the corner, patch the rear floor on this side, then do the other corner. This side was the worst; happy to reach this point.

    Here you go Pat! They announced the dates and cities way early. I doubt I go this year. I won't have my stuff together for that long of a trip I don't believe.

    Yeah, that’s a pretty long distance for me, too. Hopefully I can at least do part of it; we’ll see. Thanks for the info!

    Looking good Pat, wished I had my 68 Dodge Window Van back. Had a 318 w/a automatic in it. And by the way what part of Florida were you in?? I'm staying just 30 minutes NE of Orlando for the winter.

    Great to hear from you, Joe. I was in Cocoa Beach. How’s big Marge coming along?
    I got the corner fixed up along with patching the floor, fixing the panel that goes over the fuel filler tube, and sealing the surface rust on the backside with some POR-15. Next step is replace the drivers side rocker panel and do some repairs the the front of the leaf spring mount. Then all the metal work on this side is done.

    The interior is finally being finished again after the last guy ruined it & I'm suppose to have it before Christmas.
    Let me know if you come back down, Cocoa Beach isnt that far from me. I'm staying in Lake Mary for the winter..

    I’ll do that, Joe. My grandkids moved down there so we’ll be making a few trips a year.
    I cut the rocker out today and drilled out the spot welds on the spring support so I could build another one. I can’t believe this was holding the spring up; there’s nothing left of it. Luckily the frame and the inner rocker was solid so I built a new support from 1/4” plate. Maybe a little overkill but I had plenty of 1/4” so I used it. Found this stamp on the frame when I cut the old bracket off; pretty cool.
