A long day - Part 2:
My first job on the bulkhead was to remove the box section cross brace.

Given all the repair work I've done, I'm really pleased with how solid it still feels without the brace.

Obviously I will be tidying up the paint work at some point.

After lifting the bulkhead into place it looked like this.

The good news is that my brake master cylinder tucks into the recess I made for it.

The bad news is that the top still seems high to me, but I am still a long way from worrying about that.

Note: The following photos give you some idea of the madness that is building a car on your drive!

The frame had been supplied with a "wonky" cross rail on the passenger side.

Note: This is how the driver's side looks by comparison.

Initially, I had trimmed the lowered floor pan on this side to work around this problem.

Because at that stage, the thought of making a change to the "factory" frame slightly scared me.

But there has been a lot of metal work under the bridge since then!

Now, I simply marked up the changes I wanted to make and got on with it...
