25 Years and counting.

25 years ago at the age of 15 I dragged home a broken down car. A 1972 Honda 600 Sedan. Two cylinder, air cooled sedan that looks alot like an old Minicooper but oh so much cooler. The last time I drove this car was the spring of 1987. I always intended to fix it up more but life happens and in my grandparents garage she sat waiting. Fast forward 25 years and it's time to finish what I started and bring her back to life.

More Rust Repair

Summer is a busy time for our family, we spend a lot of time at camp and when we are home there are always things to do around the house. I was able to find some time to patch the rust in the driver's front wheel well.

Fitting the patch panel

Finished and welded in place.

I also started on the floor pan, this is a shot of the front drivers seat mounting location, i had to recreate the recessed area where the seat bolts as well as teh surrounding area.

A better shot of the repair waiting for grinding and final welding. These were not fun to make, thankfully only two of them are rusted out the other 6 mounting locations are in fine shape.
