Started to remove the floor over the N/S chassis rail, but it hadn't even been welded to the floor

Obviously the previous owner was going for weight over strength
Then i braced the shell in a couple of places and removed a large chunk of the floor pan


That is all for today, i think i'll go and wash the car
