SW Side Frame replacement

I've just removed both B post side frames from my Dormobile - I thought the bottoms of the B posts were a bit crusty, but the whole bottom frame section were bad!

I managed to get two frames from a crashed Defender, just a little bent/buckled, but after some work on the 20 ton press and big hammer, they straightened out, so are ready to go back on.

Then again, I like the open-ness without them - wonder what it would be like to drive like this:
