With his engine rebuild on hold, I decided to dive into dealing with Ringo’s rust issues. Yesterday, I removed the seats, seatbelts, doorsills, speakers, and rear carpet and began ripping and cutting out the rotted metal. I put him up on jackstands and surveyed the underside. It’s going to be some work, but fortunately it appears that the important structural elements (rocker panels) are still fairly solid. Click here to see more photos.
