It started off as good day, but.......

Well laid plans always go wrong.

This weekend was going to be productive, and a perfect time to tear out the original suspension and remaining A/C components. Clean and prep for my new coilover suspension and Smart ARB's. And do a little surface rust repair, or so I thought.

It seems a past battery leaked enough to go through the pan and into the built-up crossmember between the front suspension points, then rust out the bottom of the crossmember.









At least I got that pesky Mouse with my carefully planned trap!

I hate when stuff like that happens. What's the game plan? Can you fix the damage yourself or need to farm it out? Good luck!

It'll be a DIY job.

I built a wide body RSR look out of a rusty 72T about 20 years ago, and that was a job. This won't be as bad as that project, but with work getting in the way, this may take awhile.

I found a good write-up on R-list.

Finally got some garage time.







Quite a bit of rust in the left longitudinal, so I bought a new one to piece in. For pan alignment purposes I left it in for now. Once the pan is tacked in, I'll cut and splice in the new longitudinal. I'll also have to fab a little metal for the left front corner of the pan next to the bulkhead.

This is just a minor bump in the road, compared to all the DIY work you've done on your car!
