giving the plug welding a chance to cool, using a cold chisel to peel back the cut off edge of the left side floor pan, it should only be a single slip of steel. but it's not.

here's me thinking I'm the first to do this, and this little detail is proof this is groundhog day for this little Beetle.

taking a picture underneath to check out the floor panel of the frame head, boy that's a rusty mess, not that I wasn't expecting it. I have a repair panel for this on order.

the rear body mount doesn't line up.

the front edge needs a few mil trimmed off with a cutting disc so it can be drawn forward and allow the rear body mount to draw flush.

the frame head base plate arrived today, only ordered it yesterday. the thin projections left and right are the brake hose mounts.

to get working access to the bottom of the chassis it was necessary to flip the whole "kit-n- caboodle" onto it's side.

with the whole thing resting on the right wheels, the left wheels removed to reduce weight.
