Moving the Bajaab into the garage this weekend (if I have time 9_ 9) so went to release it from its blue tarp cocoon and let it air out a little. With the massive rain we’ve had it did still get a little wet inside, but it’s been warm and sunny today and should be warm and sunny tomorrow so hopefully will dry out quickly.

Poking around the floor and found the rust is not so bad in the firewall, it’s mostly in the floor ahead of the seats, in the lower areas of the corrugations (that is where water collected, it’s rusted from the inside out). I’ll have to scrape the sound deadening and undercoating off to see how bad it is, but poking with a screwdriver most of the floor seems solid. Who knows what nightmare is under there though.

Guess I got to learn how to weld now.
