With the plastic, you could try to add more with soldering iron for extra thickness. I did my 'welds' pretty deep to make sure it wont crack again, but it's kinda risky to have it not burn through.

 

Also, same deal with my rear bumper holders back in the days  :rofl: I should have taken more photos,

here are some of the sweetest rust parts, ahh:

That's really what I was trying to avoid more than anything.

 

wow... it's interesting seeing how rust develops in these cars. Seems like the seals and big safety bumpers are the reason why most of it occurs. Been real lucky with the floors on mine.

Got myself a little better set-up for some of the rainy days.

Also have to say that this stuff did wonders on the exhaust manifold.

Brass brush and parts cleaner worked pretty well on the wiper motor.

Got the fenders off and cleaned the wiring in the bay. Used an old plastic ruler to scrape off the sealer on the fender.

So I got a new brake master but I want to use the old Tokico caps as they have the pressure sensor for when the brake pads need changing. Hopefully its not a problem.

Did a little tranny cleaning here's before.

 

m2mC-4QYCObMVsA7ZgLv8oyZ_7aQUk9ixLIEZIXP

 

here's two hours, three spray bottles of green clean, 2 brass brushes, a pressure washer, and a whole lot of elbow grease later. I've decided on trying to use as little brake cleaner as possible after I started searching up what that shit does and what that shit can turn into if you heat it up. Be careful out there people don't go spraying that shit willy nilly, brake cleaner kills.

Nothing was looking bad, at least from what I could tell, but I decided on sending the engine out to a shop nearby that would clean all the mating surfaces properly. I just couldn't get those old gaskets off completely.

Primered spots were where glassblasting was done to clean out some of the shit and rust.

i think that will be enough to start up my little 4 banger :devil:

I just bought an adjustable tie down for the battery today at the parts store as well.

cleaned out the interior part of the tranny housing a little and installed the new throwout bearing. I'm waiting on a day where I can get some buddy over to help me get the engine and tranny over to the car and mate the two together. I also am waiting on a new prop valve before installing the new brake lines.

I do have question on the vacuum lines now that I've desmogged a changed to a weber.

 

ms1VKZFc7EP8xLQiipTePzKXWfbZDdwQmGnHLIsl

 

Do I still need that 3-way vacuum switch? I know it used to route somehow to the brake booster inlet that's there on the intake manifold but do I still need that?
