I cut out the spot welds on the old frame section. Took some time to get it all separated from the existing metal with out doing damage to parts that are still sound.
These last two pictures show the outer frame patch in place. I still have to dress out the weld some so it blends in with the original frame. I also have to put on outer frame rail that will seal it back up and make it strong again. All in all the patch came out well. I hope to get the outer patch on this weekend and begin the work on the passenger side.
