Thought I'd taken more pictures.|
The repair-modifications to the AC box continue.
|Cut the hole for the clutch master, and test-fit the mount.|
|Since I don't want to try to figure out a rubber seal for the mount, let's instead adjust the body so it seals against the plate.|
|Oh yeah. I forgot; somewhere in there I forgot how to weld? These welds are abysmal and I still don't know why.|
I also cut the hole for the wiring harness connector (2.5"h x1.85"w).
This also looks uneven, maybe I should quit while I'm ahead.|
Tomorrow is junkyard for the remaining missing connectors. Hopefully.
|Turn attention to: Needle-scaling the rear underbody. The needlescaler is a wonderful tool to remove dirt from the underbody and move it to my hair.|
|Rear bumper removed. Brackets added to the "need sandblasting" pile.|
|The scaler is not nice to thin metal. Note the needle-scaler-pin shaped holes. Added to the "fix this" list.|
More of the same at the back side of the driver's rear wheelwell.|
These both fall in the category of "I need to get the welder working correctly soon".
|Up to over the rear axle. Note the rust holes in the brace.|
|From the underside, the rust holes in the bed behind the wheelwell are more obvious.|
|Another new hole the scaler has shown me.|
|Seems like I have some work left to do on the pass side too.|
Go back to the previous day (19 Apr 19)
