The back straightened:
The boys are on Spring Break, so I wasted no time putting one of them to work, as he hasn't yet worked off this month's rent :
The undercoating on this car isn't very tough, so a heat gun and a spatula makes it fall off in sheets, good news after what I went through to get it off the other cars:
And after a good scrub, the driver floor pan is clean:
The other good news is that the jack points are in PERFECT condition, namely because they've never been used . Unfortunately you can see that improper jacking over the years has really caved in the floors. However, I have a plan:
Many people who know us think I'm nice to my wife because I love her, but it's actually because her older brother is big.
No, I mean REALLY big. And not jiggly big. I mean skull-crushing-with-one-hand big. I think it's Viking genes or something.
So I'm hoping to woo him over here with some brats and beer and have him stand in the windshield opening and jump up and down on those floors to get them back down. If you've ever seen one of his shoes you'll see that my plan is fool-proof. But if needed, I'll cut out the worst part of the floor beams to make it easier; they're so mangled it might be better to remake them anyways.
Anyhoo, various things going on this coming week, but I'll try to get more srubbing done during down time.
