One reason I bought it was because there was very little rust in the back.
Then I take up the floor mats in front of the drivers seat. Behold this mess!
I'm really glad I looked. The rest of the front area isn't this bad. I can remove the rust with a wire brush and paint with rustoleum. But this section? I'll have to take it to an autobody shop for a patch job.
Ah well. I'm working on installing wood flooring in the back of the van. Nothing else will do for a woodworker. I'm not sure I'll do the butterfly joints I mentioned in the last post. Let's see what happens. I'm scribing boards around the wheel wells and the gas tank. The center should be easier. More photos to come.
