Got some stuff done today
Tail lights mounted, installed z28 cluster, drilled b rails for bonnies and mounted the rails, installed Pontiac cd player, installed replacement hood release handle and cable. And discovered the wind noise coming from the floor, put the badass decals on, and ripped out the whole Interior. RUST!

I bet as you pulled the carpet you started to realize why you got such a good deal on that car. I'd say find a donor body and swap it over instead of trying to replace all the panels. I've been there and patches are a pain and replacement panels are expensive. Just make sure you eat your Wheaties before you try to lift the body off Wink

The thought had crossed my mind, but I would prefer to just weld in new floors. If I can find some. scratch

Wow Bill, she's coming along pretty nice! That blister in the floor has gotten worse since the last time I looked at it! Of course, I never had the carpet up in that thing to see what was under it.

I haven't been on in a few days so I may have missed something. I noticed the cats in the trunk. Did you change them out yet or are you still running the originals? If you did change them, did you notice a difference?

The cats are a couple strays I found roaming the streets of Nashua. I will be installing them to see if that fixes the problem.

I am working on a place now to paint the car this summer. I have not painted anything since 1993, so this should be interesting.

As far as the rust. The only spot that concerns me is this spot which is right over a body mount.I am going to have to jack the body about a half inch and weld in some steel plate there. It is so bad that it is buckeling and I can not put the door sill trim that covers the hood release lach on. No

Now you'll get a chance to use the new welder. From the picture that doesn't look real bad. Are you going to put in a new pan or patch? How is the rest of the floor?

Not sure on the repair yet Tom. If I can get a used set of pans, I will go that way. The pans are soft front to back and both need replacement or repair.

It has been many years since I welded, so I will be practicing on the floor pans, before I tackle the rear quarters. study

I can not wait to use my new welder. cheers

Man, I do not miss dealing with cars from up north. Looks like you need to talk to Pat on the other Forums, his blue wagon that he is working on had bigger holes in it then your car and now it looks like new. His worst holes were right around the front body mount so he could be of some great advise on how to repair the area the best way.

Sorry Dave, but untill the rot is fixed, I will not put the carpet back in. To top it off, the place where the cable for the floor shift goes through the floor has a hole in it too. Mad I purchased some 18 guage steel panels to fix the rot. And I have 1/4" steel plate to fix the spot above the body mount. cheers
