C-10 / C-20 Trailing Arm, Coil Spring Perch Rebuild

The rusty trailing arms on my 1963 C-20 were about as bad as they come, so much so I could reach my hand through some of the rust holes.  About a year ago I stenciled out 3/16″ plate and welded them on both sides of the arms in order to regain structural rigidity so I could drive it safely.  As you’ll see in later pictures I have yet to weld in one of the plates but it is already cut and will be welded in soon.
