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. 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.

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, since I couldn't go to eurofest because of some work that came in unexpectedly I did make some time today to make a new monting plate for the 915 shifter, and TIG weld it in...
