    so last weekend i took elektra over to a mates place for the rust repairs, and took a spare floorpan over yesterday (appologies for not attending the bbq aaron)

    mate had already started stripping the areas back when i got there today. i removed the fuel line and handbrake cables to assist with floorpan fixing.

    so we found a little bit more rust than i thought!









    so due to massive time constraints we will be using the spare floorpan for the rear floorpan sections, then steel in a can, for the rest.

    hell i might even decide to not register it, do the whole gas system myself, then maybe rego it later.

    body should be done this weekend, paint maybe next weekend. on 2 weeks holiday after wednesday whilst changing jobs

            That's 'mostly' fuck all rust. The C pillars - no worries there. The floorpans - sorta to be expected. It's usually because of a leaking windscreen seal but can also be related to rust/holes in teh plenum area too. So if they look 'perfect' I'd strongly suggest throwing on some small magnets (small and weak ones that 'barely' stick against bare clean metal, but won't stick when you place a few sheets of paper between them and the fridge or whatever. Then place them (without paper) onto the plenum - you might find it's mostly made of fibreglass or filler of some sort. If it isn't - massive win.

            Forgot to ask - have you had a look at the chassis rail around the steering box? Any cracks? (if there is, hold off on a repair sleeve. Sometimes a better job can be done without them)

              yeah the plenums are spotless, as is the steering box area! the windscreen pisses water, yet im fairly sure the windscreen area is tidy, but it rusted out the dash something chronic

                        so i may be out, had a cunting shit day today.

                        got woken up this morning by the missus to find the front and back of our place flooded again. turns out theres a storm water drain just behind our joint that cant handle quick heavy rain (3 times in 5 months) which then the excess water washes out the back of mine and my neighbours places. washes mulch into my storm drain and blocks the grille, then floods the back and front of my joint.

                        also the roof has started leaking alot worse than previously.. already had a roofie lined up, but now i have to repaint and maybe fix the plaster in the lounge room (again).

                        so then we went to cook lunch, and the stove has shat itself.

                        then i went to go to my oldies to drop off my tools, and the fucking landie caught on fire! got it out fairly quickly, but now have an insurance claim to sort out.. and im fucking itchy as fuck from the fire extinuisher powder in my face.

                        will have to get in contact with jmac soon to sort some shit out

                          Shit man that's a pretty fucked day

                          What caused the landy to catch fire? Plastic fuel line rub through or something?

                              Damn man, if you don't want to be in it anymore just say so, no need to make up an excuse.

                              Just how much rain caused that? Seems pretty fucked, I would say the council should do something, but I'm guessing they already did and that's the problem.

                              Like Jim said, what a fucked day.

                                dont get me wrong.. i wanna finish this project as much as i wanna root the shit outta natalie portman.. and i will continue to work on it as much as possible.. just a few more unforseen expenditures than usual! i have a worse reputation than shifty and allmtr for not finishing projects.. so im pretty keen!

                                that rain has been on and off the last 3 days, then early yesterday morning till about 9ish it got fairly heavy. the storm water drain flows ok it seems, it just cant keep up when it gets heavy.
                                neighbour has been complaining about it for a bout 3 years apparently, and they havent done a thing.
