Thanks soltz.
Closing in on closing up the hole in the DS front floor pan.
If it cools off this evening I may get out there and seal it all up.
The first picture shows the OG shop manual I picked up. This car is still mostly Cadillac so it's a great info source.
Keep on keeping on....

Looking at ZZ's Hercules build I am embareassed to post my rusty work.
The before and now.
If the sealer looks familiar it's what's left from my work on the wooden boat bottom.
Once the sealer cures. It will get a coat of por 15.
That's for later. Just trying to stay cool for now.
Keep on keeping on.....

Don't be so hard on yourself Torchie! Working on rusty stuff is a lot harder than what I'm doing playing with new shiny metal. Sometimes I feel guilty creating something new like Hercules because I don't have to follow any pattern, just going with the ideas as they come....

Rust repair is rust repair.
The new adhesives are as tough as welding when done right.

Tons of credit for saving the almost unsavable, Torchie.
