We started on the front where there were a few rust concerns and previous repairs that were not up to par. We cut those out yesterday and started making patch panels. Today we started welding them in and cutting out the right floor pan. While the cutting and welding was going on, I took the brake pedal assembly apart and sand blasted it to remove the years and years of grime it has accumulated. Once it was clean, I hung the parts up in the booth and painted them. Then all moving parts were greased up and reassembled. Its now ready for another 40 years of service. We got right much done today and we will keep moving along on this one tomorrow as well.
