Rust repair is nearly done.

I have 2 small patches to finish this evening, then it's time to clean & seal the seams, paint (inside) and undercoat (bottom).

Supposedly the masochist enjoys the pain. That definitely doesn't apply to me -- I'm sick & tired of working under this car and happy it's nearly over!

It occurred to me early on in this process that even at $700, I definitely overpaid for this car.

Part of this is my own fault: I work so slowly. I bet this is a weekend's work to someone with more experience. (And a work ethic!)
