Bends, Buckles and Cracks in the frame!

Well Folks, bad news for the Winnie!    Was doing some research to replace the Mor/Ryde suspension and stumbled upon some issues.

The frame has some major issues, including cracks, buckling and is twisted in multiple spots.    The drivers side Mor/Ryde Suspension arm has started to poke through the bathroom floor.

Good thing you and your dad are handy.A shop would charge a lot of money for that repair.

Its a bit of a poor picture due to the fish eye lens, but it was the only way I could fit the shot into the picture.   Basically we made an I beam so to speak.   Welded and bolted using grade 8, 1/2 inch bolts.   Should be pretty tough.   On the bottom you can see all-thread used to pull the frame together, we were going to remove the all-thread, but we decided to leave it there for added strength.
