I finally got around to taking care of the steering box cracks in my frame this weekend... I wish I had done it sooner, it would have saved me a lot of grinding time. There were 2 cracks, each was about 4-5 inches long. The whole job was a royal PITA. Do the reinforcement plates EVER fit? Anyway, there was a collection of paper towels in the front of my inner fender that I managed to set on fire with the grinder. Not cool. Not to mention setting the greasy frame on fire a couple of times with the welder. Luckily no damage was done (I had the garden hose ready).
