Necessary Repairs

The car was fairly solid in the key areas.  One significant issue was there had been a mouse nest under the backseat which resulted in a hole in the floor behind the driver seat.   There was also some rot in the trunk as a result around the fuel tank support.  A new floor panel came with the car, so I had that installed and new metal put into the trunk in the required areas.    I stripped the interior and trunk, disinfected and cleaned everything, addressed any surface rust with Eastwood converter, and then covered everything with POR 15. 


Mechanically the car was pretty good.  I replaced the ebrake cables and the rear brake cylinders.   The rad wasn't in great condition, so i also replaced that also.  The shifter was  sloppy, so I replaced the pins and bushings to tighten everything up.
