There'd be a few folks that'd be happy to buy that replacement panel off the shelf.

I agree and it'll be definitely worth the coin

Yep, you definitely need to put that panel into production, the end result looks great!

 

Dunno if you've welded the top back on yet but the only thing I was going to mention was to make sure the whole thing is watertight before signing-off on it, I've been caught before by MIG welds with previously invisible pinholes!

 

Although a nice thick coat of KBS would probably do that for you anyway.

Now for the drivers side floor that didn't really need to be replaced but seeing I had both floor pieces I thought why not !!
I'm glad I did get the drivers side done as John found some rust in the drivers side outrigger that wasn't really visible from the outside.

Is "outrigger" the technical term? I have always called them chassis rails, even though they don't have a chassis.
