That is a thing of beauty Pedro. I need a side draft thermostat too. I thought I had one lined up but I’m now told it is no longer for sale…

Gotta love how those big patches make small work of those holes. Laughing I find using big pieces makes short work of rust, kind of like doing full length floor pan sections, which you've already done. Cool The inside of that forward rocker/foot well support looks nice and solid too. Are you going to seal it in some sort of paint while you still have access to the inside? Looking up my friend, looking good. Cool

Rear Sección Fitted

When I separated the Pan
Basically that sección was GONE
The more I was digging I was finding MORE rust
Takes a Lot of Measurements different directions
To be accurate 😊

Yup, my 64 T-34 was gone there too. I replaced it with a piece I got from OFC Doug in Illinois. That same car gave up the rear engine surround to Lee Hedges.
