Finished rebuilding the heater core too. New blower motor resistor came in today, same as 720 resistor for those who want to know.

Got the gas tank out. Used the carpet to pull it out. Oh and the bumper is gone too.

Vacuuming the carpet one more time

Did not have fun putting the front dash/cluster/heater core back together, but I can safely say that I know it inside out and backwards now. Dash panel finally cracked, but was expecting that to happen eventually. Not a bad crack so I can fix it too. Looked into Eastwood's dash stuff.

Cracked at least 5 different screw holes in different spots, "fixed" them with an electrical soldering pen like I know Atomic has. Didn't matter how gentle I was some still cracked. What can you expect from 40 year old plastic? it really got me thinking about one day having all of these parts rendered and remade through a 3d printer using better plastic.

Still keeping a thing of damp rid in the car to be cautious of moisture.

got a better idea of the rust situation today.

 

mEwYI8P-ikxysBrduujzlB3PM-YtGGoMt3QiIqBo

 

behind spare tire compartment.

 

032HkdFe5xV53ghensNMXvn7Ribu7eL4l3SCCFO1

 

Driver's side bumper/frame rail

 

G5iq2q9FtwBHn_0Ttr7ROJnNeHukTDm0seoFujcq

 

Behind rear drivers wheel. Both sides look about the same.

 

So I was thinking about how to tackle these before I put the gas tank back in and get this car back on the road. I don't care if the car has primer spots. Just want to know that the rust isn't going to get worse or at least too bad until I have the money for a proper body shop to fix it.

 

I was thinking wire wheel, brush with vinegar, wash with baking soda and water, rust converter and then maybe another coat or two of primer? Any suggestions?

Those flange bolts on the driveshaft still won't undo themselves. Placed the old brake rotor there to lessen the amount of heat rising to the car from when I used the torch.

will be getting the lines down and remaking some nicop ones.

Is the 720/Z series sender the same as the 210? Any recommendations on how to tackle cleaning and repainting this sucker? Now that the carbon canister is done I have to figure out which lines I don't need anymore.

Came to realize that practically all the rust in the rockers and bottom of quarter panels is due to cracked and old seals. Got some marine/auto sealant as a temp solution that I will apply to the outside glass seals.

Other side and center weren't too bad, want to plug up these tiny holes with some rubber grommets or something.

This weekend I think I am going to plan a day where i wake up early and wire wheel all the section of rust on the tail end. Use rustoleum rust converter and self etching primer. Hit some other sections the same way in the engine bay and panels too (different day though).
