4: Cleaning up the original rusty pan to find original welds so I know where to cut.
5: Peeling back the old metal with air chisel.
6: Cutting out the old panel. I actually re-used the original brace because it was in such good condition. (Just primed it up.)
You can see I had a replacement on standby just in case…
