I bring you a bit of an update...
I was undertaking final preparations for welding up of the right front shock absorber mount and paining of the left front mounting area. Whiles using the flapper disk to clean up the rust on the left side I noticed that the weren't any sparks followed by shiny metal. It turns out that the surface rust turned out to be a cake of rust.
I managed to cut out the rot and prepare the surface for just like I did the right.
Top Layer Cut Out
Next cleaning up and prep for welding
Weld No2 primer
All is ready for making the template and welding these holes up.
One this that has been irritating endless every time I look in the engine bay. The cover plate on the bulk head for the heater hose was caking with rust so much so that I would compare it to a double patty burger. When I tried to get the nuts of I would that having a one man show while you try to undo a nut in the engine bay and the bolt head on the car it was never going to work. So I resorted to cutting the nuts and bolts in half with the grinder. I bit of cheating but it worked like a carom.
The bulk head is in surprisingly good condition considering what the plate looked like.
The next step is to make a template and get her sorted.
Another thing I picked up while running over the car is that the rear right wheel has been rubbing on the shock as swell as the swing arm. I am not use why this would be as the wheels has spacers on and the bearings are in good condition.
Any ideas or advise as to what the rubbing might be as a result of??
