The mods are nearing completion, all glass removed, interior is removed, bed is in primer. We stripped every inch of 40 year old paint and some terrible old bodywork. We found rust holes plugged with foam, paper, glass mat and Bondo. Rust was everywhere under the primer. Years ago body techs thought that thicker was better. It was great at hiding bad work or wavy panels but it ultimately will fail and cause some serious blisters and problems later on.

By removing all the old primer filler and paint and using more modern catalyzed materials. The life of this new body and paint work could be 10-15 years. Longer if kept inside and out of the weather.

Here are some new pics of the progress. And although we still use filler it is the best product on the market today and is decades ahead of the old products.

New Life for a 1971 Chevy C-10 Pick up.

A new project is in the shop. A custom smoothed out look with frenched tail lights. Rear rollpan, handle relocater, stripping off the thick old paint and starting from bare metal with new state of the art materials. This 1971 Chevy C-10 is one of the coolest old trucks I had seen and now it will be even cooler.

We are also going to mount a fuel cell in the bed and take the gas tank out of the cab.Motor in this truck is pretty healthy and was already a street screamer.

Will keep you updated as this Truck is transformed into a lean mean street machine!

Nissan Owners Beware Of Rusty Floor Pans

"You can feel it's soft right here," Jeff Talman told KSHB.

"Right under his driver and passenger seats, the floorboards were rusting from the inside out," a KSHB reporter said.

"This is a seven-inch area where it's actually rotted up here," Talman said.

That was Jeff Talman, just one of many who have had issues with rusting floorboards in Nissan Altimas.
KSHB reported the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has received more than 400 complains about rust issues in 2002-2006 models.

NBC highlighted a Chicago woman's 2005 car, which had rusted so much the floorboards were actually crumbling.

"The hole was big enough to fit her foot through," NBC reporter Tom Costello said.

"I'm not Fred Flintstone. This is not a good thing," Marie DeMaria said.

While NBC reports snow and road salt could account for rust damage in some vehicles, that's probably not the cause in places that don't get snow and ice. And complaints are coming in from all over the country.

Both Toyota and Ford have recalled hundreds of thousands of vehicles in the past few years because rusting underbody parts made the vehicles fall apart.

Despite the number of complaints, Nissan isn't recalling the Altima vehicle models in question.

"It's not a safety recall problem that's going to cause immediate death and injury if you have a hole in the floor. As a result of that, what we've seen is that Nissan has been able to get away with this problem," auto safety expert Sean Kane told WBZ-TV.

KSHB reports the age of the cars is another way Nissan is able to avoid covering cost to fix them.

"Once it's out of the warranty period, obviously they don't have any legal obligation. It becomes more of a customer service issue of whether they want to deal with it or not," body shop owner Bill Eveland said.

NBC did reach out to Nissan for comment, but the carmaker reiterated that both it and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration do not consider the rust problem to be a safety defect.
