Rust repairs (upgrades)
 
I got some time to work on my own project (finally) Just some basic rust repair panels, but it's still some progress. :D They are not welded in place yet.

And today I finished the basic install of the new rear apron that uses zdus fastners to remove apron for drive train work. I still have some metal work to do to get the fit tighter with the body (damn brazilian made parts)

Good to see you got a chance to get back on your project. Love the way you mounted the rear apron.

Nice touch with the removable rear apron and Dzus fasteners. Wish I would have done it... ;)

Already got the mexi seals Tony. You told me about them over on STF years ago, before I joined this site, and the VKG. ;)

Well, my progress with this project is slow so I still remember the stuff I bought already. But, I do suffer from C.R.S. quite often. :rolleyes::lmao::lmao:

Today I got the pan mounted on my engine stands/rotisserie. Can you notice I don't like working on the ground with my projects if possible? :rolleyes::D

that's a nice setup for working on the pan

wrenchnride247 September 21st 2009 23:13

Thanks man. I got them on sale a few years ago from northern tool at $30 bucks each! This saved some time making something just for the pan. I'm planning to get this GL done sometime early next year.

NO_H2O September 22nd 2009 08:03

Great idea for the pan. Save the knees and back.

wrenchnride247 September 28th 2009 22:29

Wow, this is the longest period in time I have been able to work on my project (in the same year!). Some more was done today. Had some small areas of rust on the mounting lip, but took care of it already. The new pans needed some stuff removed (seat rails, battery mount, and rear bracing) Had to remove the jack point to get the rear brace off (hidden spot welds), and will weld it back on later. Ran out of time to prep the drivers side pan though. But, there is still progress being made!!
