Time for trunk surgery
So, a couple of weeks ago, backed out of the garage, something didn’t sound/feel quite right. Found a left rear axle bearing shelled out. Pieces of the ball cage in the drum, and inner bearing race cracked.
Not a huge deal...but poking around under the car, decided it was time to clean/paint etc. keyword “poking”. Car had a felt mat glued in the trunk, and lo and behold found some rot beneath it.
Ordered 3 piece trunk pan from opgi. Pulled the tank and differential (might as well clean paint and rebush.
I’ve not done much light gage mig, but, well no time like the present.
