pulled the interior, doors and windshield as well as all of the wiring
The worst of it was under/behind the drivers seat. The seat mounting braces were insanely rusty and had a broken bolt in one of them. the front seat was being held down with sheetmetal screws.

This is the drivers rear foot well you can see where the rear brace was removed

This is where the front brace for the drivers seat was.


My dad helped me weld in this little patch and get the new seat braces welded in...turns out dad isnt much of a welder/body guy love you anyways thanks for trying.

same shot with the lights off and a light under the car
seeing as its for saftey i purchased my own mig/gas shielded welder and re-did it








Here you can see the edge of the windshield frame.I got weeks worth of naval jelly until the rust was gone. then sandblasted and self etch primer
smoothed it out with some short strand fiberglass once sealed
Then came another nasty blow. Quater panel rust. This car spend its life in tallahasse fl but still had the fender rot







a shot from inside the drivers QP (was quite proud of the gaps here)
