  1. Bonus photos of repaired rust in hatch and helper blackbird who likes to sit next to car and eat meal mates while grinding and welding happens
  2. And apart from 20% of the rust repairs that have been started that’s where it is up to so far, thanks to Amy for convincing me to actually do something on it as well as making it move along at a pace faster than measured in decades and all the lovely photos, Charlie the cat and this album
  3. Then of course came the obvious next step to any project when it’s at its most time and money uphill battle stage, the wheel purchasing
  4. It was then bought home to start the rust work and to sit and look at while sampling some ouzo and limoncello
  5. The underside was blasted and painted black which also looks awesome and clean to work on
  6. From there it was deemed appropriate to send it to the sandblasters thereby avoiding any inconveniences relating to manual labour to get an idea on what shape the body was in, as C.A Levien does such an amazing job too
  7. So began the realisation that a modern car such as an fc in fact can rust as shown below
  8. After a brief lack of interest spanning a short 10 years, its time to once again give the impression of working on it as it was once again discovered
  9. Turns out fuel pump was broken as plenty of petrol in tank
  10. This is going to be one loose goose
  11. Looks sweet, please take to bonneville when finished For final layer of paint with salty clear coat
