  1. I just got done converting the rear tub to fit forward facing seats: And I was really excited to get out and use it. Gave it a really good pressure wassh above and below and at this point I realised the rear outriggers were heavily corroded. So I started poking around with a screwdriver. Outriggers lead me to body mounts. Here the front of the tub where it meets the bracket was gone. Never wash your car. The mud is in some cases structural. This lead me to the door sills. Door sills led me to the seat box side panels. Moving forwards along the sills, the footwells are also corroded. A quick poke around and I've got daylight 😭 Sooooo - here we go.

I can't afford to replace the bulkhead with a galvanized version at this point. For now I'm going to repair it as beset I can to last me another 5years or so and save my pennies for a full rebuild using a galv chassis as a base. But for now - this is where I am:
