Tell me about it, SoCal junkyards are mind boggling to a Brit!
^^ Haha, no - not you specifically, though you really had me going!
My wife is from SoCal and it almost brings me to tears, walking through the junkyards down there. Last time we were down there, I saw a white 1977 Honda Civic wagon in the Ecology (Fontana) yard. 4 speed. Paint was mint as was the interior. Super clean - not a spec of rust. No dents, just a couple chips that likely occurred in the yard. Whoever junked that must have been seriously mentally challenged.
The car is on the ground, last night I finished the drivers side rear beam mounting point and pinch weld. I opted to finish the rocker welding at a later point to get the car back on all 4 wheels. I went and picked up my spare rear beam that I had been hoarding for about 5 years. The beam came from my 84 scirocco when I parted it out, it had new brakes and E brake cables. I threw the beam on in the dark, put the car down, and set the ebrake it still works nicely. I'll be over at the car tomorrow so I'll take some better pictures. For now here is some picture catch up, the pass side rocker 95% complete and completed rear beam mounting point.
Drivers side rear beam mounting point brace.
Rain on Tuesday and working late yesterday stopped me from getting all the pictures I wanted but I made some good progress.
Got a bunch of parts in from GAP.
Car on the ground.
Hoping it stays sunny today so I can get some better pictures this evening.
I really need to get a camera to so I can take some good quality photos my phone isn't cutting it.
Well its been awhile since I've had time to wrench lately. The holidays, money, and the fact I recently low speed rear ended a prius in my coupe have been keeping me busy. Today though I got the coupe back on the road, swapped the coils from the coupe to the rocco and finished up the oil breather.
was there rust?
