Changing the Frame to Fit the Tanks

Above is a photo before the frame change.
The frame is structurally sound, so only surface rust was removed.
The missing outrigger will be fabricated and welded back to the frame.
The frame is cut to make room for the in-frame fresh water tank.
A new front cross rail and out rigger are welded back to the frame.
Here the frame is upside down showing the new A-frame connection to the cross rail.
