Some hammer welding across the pan?

Is it drivable again? How's about the steering column?

I can drive it around the parking lot, but I need to do some more welding. I didn’t do anything to the steering column. It’s right where it’s always been. I used a saws-all with a new blade to cut it. Took my time, I’m happy with it. Next major step is hanging the doors.

Should be zip tied and twisted. Ranger cables move horrendous amounts under heavy power. Maybe 1/2" on 6" zip tie spacing

Orange cable should have shield layer

I think the filler neck is going to be on the driver side rear quarter. Possibly settling on top, similar to how it is up front.
