front seats out,roll cage out,carpet out,

found a butchered transmission tunnel which ill have to plate up and weld,also found some cancer in the floorpans,

not much considering the age of the car,they are the original floorpans aswell
ill just cut it out and fabricate some plates to the right shape and weld in there after treatin areas and stuff of course

worst dent of all
Image


how would i go about fixing this,the bonnet doesnt line up with it,its like its stretched,and you cant just unbolt the guard,you have to drill out spot welds,hunt another down,line it up right and weld back in place,pain in the a*** and would rather repair

any ideas?

motor is coming out this weekend

it needs a rebuild

comp test showed

1-160psi
2-80psi
3-40psi
4-100psi

bit of a difference from the first test but it was to be expected anyways
been sitting for a long time
at least with it rebuilt i know it will take the flogging i plan on giving it
