Traveller bare shell support

Postby woodpidgeonservices » Sat Jan 06, 2018 12:56 pm

Once I have my traveller down to a bare shell will it need any reinforcement welded in place to stop it twisting out of shape? If so then how much?

Also , Will it be ok to remove the doors first without reinforcments? I will be welding a bar across the door opening when I replace the Cills and hinge pillars but I'm not sure if I need anything more that that.

Any guidance much appreciated

if you have removed the wood, then yes you will need to brace,

across the b, pillars and as you say across door opening's

you may also need something from the b pillar brace to the rear floor area to stop it dropping when you start cutting out,
