The floor has been opened up to the extent of the rust, at this time I’m not sure how much more will be removed. For now I kept the cut forward of the forward front seat mounting rail.

At this point I’m ready to get the car to the soda blaster, when the car returns I will then figure out if any additional cutting will be necessary.

The trunk floor has multiple holes to fill and an overall bad surface, I felt replacing it all might be the easier way to go. A new panel was acquired off ebay and I received it today. Even at a glance I could see it wasn't well made, the groves were shallow and v shaped not a deeper u shape one. Placing the panel in the trunk quickly showed that the fit wasn't great and it didn't cover the areas that needed work. So the next work session I'll be looking at the floor more closely to see how bad it is and what it might take to gust fix it otherwise I'll be looking for a donor.

I know people have been faithfully checking the site looking for updates but his is all I have to probably Tuesday.

Received my air cleaner back from powder coating the other day and it looks better than new. Personal custom service from Phoenix Specialty Coatings

Currently I’m looking for a new trunk pan, till I get one no money is being spent. I have a lineup on a possible donor car and hope to know soon.

It looks like my registration is finally resolved. CHP did their VIN check and I got the paperwork through DMV. So if I need to transport the car I can tow it on its own wheels or use a dolly, once I receive the registration back from Sacramento I can use the plates but till then I have to use the temp (which is temporarily affixed to the car, will use better tape if I end up moving the car before then.)
