Wow, I just dug up this old photo. This was taken Fall 2006, a few months after I got the car.

Yes, I had a round face as a child :-p

http://www.amazon.co...k/dp/B000PEQGMM
(requires a gun... but well worth it.)
this is really great stuff. goes on just as good as the oem....
I remember when I did a couple of these... I went sofar as
getting rid of that stupid rubber trim on all the wheel wells
and I bondoed up the holes that held on the rubber trim...
after shooting the whole bottom and wheel wells I put a
piece of masking tape halfway in (where the rubber trim
used to be) and sprayed a fake rubber trim with this stuff.
there is also a product called "rocker schutz" which I believe
is paintable... and is what is on the subies rockers....
I usually just scrape this stuff off clean... and then paint
the rocker with out it.... but you can by rocker shutz......
Also another goodie... is 3m window weld...
http://www3.3m.com/c...ler/output_html

it is a little pricey but fills holes pretty good..... or spots where you can
weld rivet with this between the metal...(it aint going nowhere)
(where gloves don't get this junk on you.. don't come off....
as bad as pur-15 as a skin clinger
I almost lost my subie... the wheel wells rotted out... and
the struts popped through....... make sure you wash then
out good... there are too many nooks and crannies in there....
AND my subie is in the Hospice right now... the lower
piece of the rear suspension rotted out .
the tube the trailing arms are connected to............
run a ton of water through there(the tube)

If you want to keep you car as long as you can...
got to fight against the rust with preventative....
measures........

Good Luck!

Haha, well... you can pretty much thank Twitch for that. I may have been in possession of all this techno for the last 5 years but he's the one who got me listening to it... :)

I really made progress today, I fixed the driver side frame corner and POR'ed it. And I also fixed the broken welded nut which holds the lower bolt on the hoodlatch support, So I was then able to put the valance on and get it all buttoned up. Only thing I have left to do would be, putting the fenders back on ansd buy 3 or 4 more stainless bolts/washers as I don't have enough.

I also got a lot of footage today and some pictures. I will try to get more pics tomorrow.

Cheers all!

I just subscribed to your youtube stuff. Good work on everything and great documentation. You're inspiring me to take more pics/vid of my work and to fix the little bit of rust on the GL.

Oh no! Damn dirty brake-lines! (Like Damn Dirty Apes)

I got the car all put together today, and looks awesome! I have some pictures which I need to upload and I have a new video on youtube which I'll post here. Next step is to take the car over to the paint shop and have then wet sand the inperfections out.

Happy I get to drive it tonight!!
