When the frame came back from the sandblaster, the job of re-welding and boxing in the rails was at hand. The rear crossmember was completely re-welded, both top and bottom. From the factory the rear crossmember is only tacked, then riveted in place. The trailing arm perches are also welded for extra strength. Harrison boxed the frame with 1/8-inch steel plate, but left the front section undone on account of not knowing where the new transmission crossmember would be situated. The frame horns, up front, were also welded both top and bottom. Once all the welding and re-enforcement was done, the frame was off to Corsair Powder Coating in Ontario, California.
