Rear bumper brackets on the inside were rusty and loose

Removed the bracket to fix it and also fix the floor under it

Fixed the bracket and sussed a repair piece for the floor ... but how to weld it in properly..

So.... minor escalation in repairs.... off with the valance~!!!

Turns out it was held on with a little brazing and some pop rivets :sad: , plus welded at the top
