Bit of a boring picture less update..

Got rid of battery tray today, grinded that shit out and decided it would be a great idea to grind off the tip of my finger too (so thats why grinders have a guard on them?!?)
Removed the last of the wiring, brake lines and fuel lines so now shell is 100% bare and ready for blasting. Down side to that is having zero dollars untill march due to being uber focused to being debt free in the new year, so from now untill then she will sit on the down low.. Also remove all sound deadening to inspect state of floor and tunnel. As to be predicted the floor is totally rooted on both sides, tunnel is mint though, but that doesn't help much as that will be fucking off to make way for a W series g box..

Next step is get it blasted in the new year to say get F to all rust and then concentrate on rust repairs. An being a little bit hopeful but the goal is to have panel work done and ready for bog/prime/paint by the end of next year....

Aghhh soooooo many rusts!

Ohhh damn, that could be an idea to look at. Was going to go with a T50 but for the price you pay for them (almost as much as a W) I figured I may as well just do it once and do it right. T50 would last for a good amount of time but I will be turbo charging this within a few years of it being back on the road so want to future proof it for more horses, plus it make sense to do tunnel now while it needs floors etc rather then revisiting it a few years down the track..

Cheers tho bro, will have a look into to G series and see what I can find out!

Pic less update..

Not alot new to report, removed front valance today as it was shit and fuck, grinder out abit of rust around the fuel filler door to prevent spreading, drank a whole bunch of 8% woodys and went and hit some bmx dirt jumps.... So an ok day!

Must get blasted.. Must get new wielder...

Both of the above best happen soon. Super keen to actually start making so forward progress on this..

Could possibly save enough money for blasting etc by swapping to blue Diesels/Billy Mavericks? Or Mad Jack's if you're in the Wairarapa.
