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.

Got myself sorted with a little extra space in my garage too, decided to bring the tires and other stuff that needs to get cleaned inside.

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.
