Put it all back together and got the frame rolling again, now onto rust repair under the body and then I can put the body back down on the frame.

Super job!

Do you weld for a living? They look great.

What primer and paint did you use?

Did you you insert a rigid bar inside the housing while welding the brace on, to prevent the weld from pulling the axle tubes towards the rear?

nope I draw on AutoCAD for an aluminum company for a living, and paint and primer was both rustoleum, the paint was a brush on style. For welding the brace on the rear I just put the axles and spool in and jumped around to try to keep heat down.
