Just dropped off some Vg steels to Halcrow engineering for 2" bands WooHOo!

Also have uncovered some butchery, there is a false floor barely tacked and mostly gooed in over the origional floor pan which going to be replaced, seems weird someone would go to all the effort to fix it/ cover it up like that when fixing it properly wouldn't have taken alot more effort!

also some fun time rust in sill left side and inside a piller . Pics to come

Recently I've rebuilt my steering box , had a "bolt in replacement" but the bolt holes were 1/2 " futher apart so must have been out or a different model. Anyway took out the internals from the not fucked new 1 and put them in origional housing with some new needle roller bearings and a seal... yae the sector shaft now dosn't move laterally 3 mm :) 

Now for sill rust , just 1 side , went on discovery adventure with angle grinder

1mm skim coat of bog dust through out garage 

 

 

Where they brazed on the Wagon to a sedan body

can see old repairs stitched in front half of sill , hence all the bog

The inside of the bottom of the A piller is also rusty , hopefully can replace it when i have the sill off...

Floor pan still to come - turns out false floor (galv sheet metal) tacked in with pigeon shit over top of origional floor was a dumb idea from previous owner...

not looking forward to what i find under it

also need to figure out a good way to get the worlds supply of underseal off the underside... im thinking Liquid Nitrogen??
