What did you do to your car today?
Another step forward in the rust battle…
Now I need to patch up the tail panel where the pesky twilight gaskets were in a couple spots and start prepping the trunk for paint

Love bug season down here in SW Florida. Front windshield of the F150 covered with them. Took a spray bottle and watered down the windshield then stole a couple of my wife's dryer sheets, used them on the glass and bug guts and carcasses came right off with no effort rinsed the dryer sheet film off with the spray bottle of water wiped with micro fiber towel and WALA!!! nice and clean.
Rev 1 of bending up a patch for the tail panel where the weatherstripping goes.  Almost there!  If anyone has rust in the same place and buys a Goodmark tail panel to cut a patch out of - don't bother.  The way Goodmark formed up the weatherstripping area isn't even close to what FOMOCO did.  I spent about half a day on a box brake and welding some jig to my bench to make up a decent patch that resembles OEM.

Going to try for 2.0 today and get it a little closer

Bit of nostalgia... same car, same location, different dates...The lower pic is the car today, June 23rd, 2019 out for a rare cruise as I continue to confirm the recent work (carb issues) actually made a difference in real world driving... The good news, she is running great, good enough to take her out for this short cruise. Even did its first mini burnout, turned side ways pretty quick, even with the trac-lok rear end. The top pic, is from August 29th, 2015, shortly after receiving the car from Spokane, WA. The only drive I had with her before I started the tear down for the rotisserie restoration. Hard to see in the pic, but she was in pretty rough running shape but held together on that day to allow me one drive before i took her apart.
Very cool. And fantastic car.
