WOMEN! I've discovered the biggest reason why I don't get to spend time on this pile... MY MISSIS!
Jesus bloody wept, you'd think I'd get a bit of understanding help here but nooooo!!! She talks to me like I'm going on a fuckin fishing trip!
Whatever... We must press on despite setbacks from our female companions and despite what ever time of the month they are having.
I left work early to prepare the car for mini weldathon tomorrow, I thought I'd get a good start tomorrow morning. She had other ideas. So I managed (with a rather awkward atmosphere over our house) to strip out the passenger side interior trim and remove part of a support panel.
I was pleasantly surprised of the condition of the floor under the rear seat as I've not seen it for some years. In stark contrast though, the repair I knew I had to do looked horrible.... And got worse.
Bet your pleased you never bought it now eh? I'm not pleased I still have it!
Still, I've had worse and although it's probably added another 3 hours worth of pissing around to the day I already haven't got, it's fairly straight forward to fix.
My only worry is that the sills are full, that's full, of waxoyl. Waxoyl goes up like a slightly damp Christmas tree when welding. I'll probably dampen the surrounding area down a bit first to give me a fighting chance!
On a slightly better note... I went out and started the car, it didn't even turn over once before firing right up. It's great when that happens.
