Rust, rust, rust

August, 2006

Spent much time cleaning up the "hell-hole" - here it is, almost ready for welding:
I also spent a lot of time taking bits-n-pieces off the car. Here's what I found when I took the rocker panels off:
...and the bumper (other side looks jus as bad):
...and the floor pans (after using a heat gun to get that crappy tar off of them...)
Fortunately, none of this rust is structural. But it does lead me to conclude that it is time to take the whole car down to bare metal (a decision that took me nearly a year to recover from...)
