Quick update.

Things are still moving at a glacial pace...at least it matches the weather. The floor frame got welded in with about a thousand screws to secure the panels! I know it's overkill - but it won't rattle.



I spent an entire weekend getting the final fitting done on the panels and building the dead pedal. It's now done.



I have since turned my attention to the projects that were left half done and have started getting those done.

Things like engine mounts.

Done.



Then the oil pan has been half done for about 6 months - so I fitted up the various parts.







And then welded it all up. No leaks.







I'm not sure what I should attack next...could be interior rear floor pans or I could get the anti roll bar installed. Both need finishing.

Craig, how do you check for leaks, water? I was taught many years ago a great way to check welds for leaks and I've mentioned it a time or two here on TB. A pint of rubbing alcohol with a few drops of red food coloring. For your pan I'd guess about a cup of this poured into the pan a swished over all the welds would do. Put the extra back in the bottle. If there are cracks or pinholes they show up as red lines, it's sort of a poor man's NDT!

That's a great idea Alan - I normally use windex as it's easily seen. I'll be coating the inside with a bit of Devcon to ensure no leaks.
