Here are some pictures of what the welder did last night

The back side of the rocker is completely horrible. As soon as I get the front fender off and the seats out we are going to tackle the inner rocker and floor.

If you look at where the holes are located they are exactly where the rivets were that hold the molding on.
debating on if I want to put it back on or not..If I don't place them back I'm going to fill in all holes with weld.

Nice, What does he charge per hour? In the spring I will have several projects in need of a professional welder.

Just want to ask really fast. On the seats. I see that I can't take the rails off from underneath without removing the Case to get to them. What's the easiest way to get the seats removed to cut the floor out?

You should be able to get to them without removing the transmission and transfer case, you'll just have to use some smaller ratchets/wrenches and squeeze in there. You can also lower the transmission crossmember and let them hang from the engine for more clearance. Just make sure the hood is open and let the crossmember down slowly with a floor jack. It won't hurt it at all.

Still more work than I as hoping.. What about removing the seats from the rails... Like a 1/2 inch wrench?

I suppose you could... it probably won't be that much easier though. It only takes about 20 minutes to lower them. 6 bolts from the t-case skid plate, 4 nuts/bolts from the crossmember, and 4 from each seat. Maybe an hour and a half to two hours total.

If you want to remove from the inside, take the seat backs off first which should be 3 torx bolts on each side, depending on what kind of seats it has, and use a small pry bar to get it loose. Then you pull off I think 4 plastic retainers holding the cushion to the frame and 4 nuts holding the frame to the rails.

You could possibly get away with not taking it all apart, but I feel like it would be a real pain in the butt. It's so much easier with everything visible and out in the open.

Stalled until I get the fender and seats off.
Getting it put on stands tonight though I hope and going to try and move the brake lines away from where we are going to be welding.
I did cut the old brake cable. Too rusted to save and the other cable is in better shape.
Zach is getting the E-brake balancer off of Kammy.
Did confirm that the SX/4 has 2.72 ration in the Axles but Kammy's tag is too rusted for me to see..

Any word on Penny?

Called the shop today. 4.2 is out. Sounds like progress is being made.
