Question for you experienced guys... how should I attach these new panels? of course I can weld and even throw in a few plug welds in the middle of the panel. Or should I use some sort of an adhesive/epoxy?

 

My only concern it rusting from the inside out.

The bottom one, I would make sure is sealed so nothing could get between and start rusting out. If you weld it, don't start at one spot and work around. Do a little weld and move elsewhere for more. It will keep warping down.

Thanks Kenny.

 

I'm thinking that I will paint the deck and the back side of the panel with the good Rustoleum Heavy Rust that I like, drill some plug weld holes, stitch weld the perimeter with 2" weld and then use seam sealer to seal the rest of the perimeter.

Sounds like a good plan. Just keep an eye on the seam sealer so it doesn't disappear. Lots of abrasion going on under there!

That looks good. Should provide extra support/strength for the deck.

Welded the wheel bracket back on, the welds aren't the prettiest but they are far better than the boogers that I ground off. Cleaned up the top for paint and then POR'd the bottom. Also got the wheels cleaned up and primmed. Now I'm off to source some new sealed bearings for the rear wheels.

Getting the deck back together and figured I couldn't hang it by that old nasty looking hanger... So I'm freshing it up a little. I'm kind of surprised at the lack of grease zerks on the hanger frame. I'm thinking of drilling some holes and installing my own. I guess it's held up this long though. Oh and I'm also repainting the engine shield tins.
