patched up some more holes tonight. more fires! more fun.

i'll be done the worst side (passenger) tomorrow, i think. the driver's side will take another couple of hours. Now I know why they invented electric welders (speed). a final hour to re-undercoat and re-paint stuff and bob's your uncle.

let this be a lesson to all of you living in the rust belt: rustproof your cars!

that's a lot of work on a $150 car (and dropping! thanks, ebay & teamswift.net).
