progress report

I'm working on a van to live in while I travel.

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.
