About the only thing to love about Texas

For the first time ever I gutted my interior, removed my rocker covers and wheel arches to hunt around for rust and found very little The tar was suprisingly easy to remove, the hard part was the old glue that held down the carpet

Wheel wells looked great and had very little rust under the rocker but no big deal because that piece will be removed when I buy someone's aftermarket rocker covers

Boring pics if you want to see them,,

I grew up in Il. I remember the rust too well! The carb and intake you set up for me are still running great

Great to hear , I love feedback , especially over time .
As a side note , for once all the irritating things about the Suzuki are going away due to this build . I can't complain , my current one has over 300k on it so the rust issue was really expected . Not to mention , literally everything is worn out .

It would take a miracle to make the Melt , just not enough time nor progress on the new rig . Not to mention, money just keeps getting shorter , lol .
Should have just built it like Fubar, keep it simple...
