After filing smooth the cut pieces, some ingenuity came into play. Because the rear cab mounts on an Effie's chassis are 1/4 inch higher than the frame, Rob created a fixture with the square tubing, which he C-clamped the cab mount platform to 1/4 inch higher before tack-welding the narrowed driver-side mount. To maintain a reference point to measure from, he performed the cutting and tack-welding one side at a time. After repeating the cutting, tack-welding, and measuring on the passenger side Rob laid down a finish-bead TIG weld all around the cab mounts on both sides.
