It Must Be Winter in NH

Yeah, so what? I took 6 months off. Get off my back. For all you know I was in rehab (or at least should be). New insulated doors bay doors were installed in the fall along with the new kerosene tank and I am toasty. I put in a couple of welding stints on the trunk which had lots of pin holes after the media-blasting. I'm trying to find the perfect balance between the thickness of the weld and what was once sheet metal.

I am actually starting to think about getting some Por-15 on both sides of the floor pan. But, I 've got some grinding to do before any coatings. I can't believe I've been able to get away with only miniscule rust spots after 6 months of sitting post-media blasting. Whatever that material they used in the blasting seemed to leave some sort of coating that must inhibit the rusting process. If it doesn't snow every day like last year I'll stay busy on this thing, at least until ice-out.
