yea I didn't see the point in buying a new pan half for two small-ish repairs. bit of hammering to get the troughs in the front bit of pan and just a cross indent to strengthen the battery tray. Not perfect but should look fine.

one of the joys of Oz. This one had lived most its life in Victoria and it's pretty dry down there and the roads don't get salted.

Finding a few rusty bits in the tops of the heater channels but nothin too serious. I couldn't really afford doing a resto if the body hadn't been so solid. well ok, the wife wouldn't of liked it
