Radiator Support Repair – Part IV

Today the inner structure of the radiator support was repaired. The worst sections were removed and replaced with new sheet metal. Some of the new section was overlapped for added strength. After trimming and test fitting time and time again, the inner structure was finally ready to be welded in. Spot weld holes were drilled and weld through primer applied anywhere the inner structure overlapped with the outer sheet metal. The day ended with a practically complete radiator support. Some finish grinding is needed and the two lower braces need to be blasted and fastened. Next week the part should be painted and the holes are to be drilled for the new battery tray from National Parts Depot.
