on a positive note though, i forgot to mention i finally got the inner bearing races off of the rear trailing arms. so during the week i should be able to get those coated with the chassis saver and the new bearings put on.

also on a good note, i've been going back and forth on how i want to attack these new to me rear quarter panels. i've been doing a lot of research on panel adhesive which from what i have read was basically created to make panel repairs for newer cars that have thing sheet metal like our cars. i was looking into this option because all ihave is a flux core welder and that is way to hot to weld this thing of metal, it will burn right through. But, my friend informed me over the weekend he has a mig welder that is somewhat portable and runs on a 110 electrical setup so i wont need to run a new breaker in my garage. so, again i have both welding and panel adhesive options available to me.

I dont think i'll be able to tell for sure until i pull the tranny for the clutch. Its too hard to tell with it in the car, no room for my hands and all of the ac lines and coolant lines. It does look like it is a little shallower than the back hole. Not by much. But still, how wonderful. Not only are the studs not available anymore, one is also potentially broken off in the housing. Ugh.

EDIT: They are still available, i'm just an idiot and was looking at the wrong parts breakdown image.

some updates since i got to work on the car this weekend. the floor of the car is all prepped and ready for a coat of chassis saver. I attempted to drill out the spot welds on the other panel and i realized how screwed up that panel really is...it was repaired already at least once, i really don't know if i can use it now. we'll see how that pans out. i scraped all of the loose flaky stuff off of the fuel tank and coated that with chassis saver. then i ran out and need to get more to finish the bottom of the tank. turning out pretty good. i tested the fuel metering unit to see if that was my issue with the fuel gauge not responding. It sure seems like it, i was getting a wide, wide range of ohms on my tester, it was all over the place. i also but some trim paint from a local auto paint supply place. the guy there said a lot of body shops really like it, so i figured why not. i bought a can and sprayed my oem fog covers to make them look new. Not sure how i feel about the finish, it came out glossier than i had wanted, what do you guys think? and lastly, and as with every time i work on the car, i found more stuff that needs to be repaired...clutch master cylinder is leaking on the inside of the car, and i am definitely going to need an insert kit for the bolts in the back of the block for the driver's side axle support, and most likely for the transmission mount. oy....

Awesome work on this stuff Dante. My mom and dad just recently "bought back" their 1987 Toyota 4Runner (SR5, 22RE, 5 Speed). It was sold to my uncle in the mid 90s who lives up in Lancaster county PA. So, we feel you on the rust project.. So much that we even bought another 87 rolling shell here locally to get our sheet metal out of, lol.

We have lots of work ahead of us involving POR 15 for the chassis however. We already treated the upper and lower shock mounts when replacing the shocks a few months back. This stuff is super cool, it really does save chassis'.

I am watching this work closely for tips/tricks. Good stuff!

thanks! i probably should have bought a gallon or so of this stuff, it would have been much cheaper than buying a quart at a time but i was worried about letting it sit too long or the lid not sealing properly. i figure it costs a little more buying a quart at a time, but i'm not wasting any. rust repair is such a motivation killer lol i hope your rebuild on the 4runner goes well!

I worked on the teg for a little while today, until it bit my hand twice pretty good. I removed the type r manifold to clean it up. I forgot what a tight fit that thing is to get out of there. I'm gonna clean it up with a brass wire wheel on all of the real rough stuff and then polish it like in the article. I also broke the plug to the vtec solenoid. Doh! I also took the fan shrouds out to clean them up. They are a bit rusty. I really need to get a game plan of how i want to attack the various repairs on the car so i dont end up taking something off the car and then put it back on only to take it off again to fix something else. Here is a few pics before i got tired of the car lashing out at me lol

got some more work done on the car this week. pulled the headliner so i can spruce that up a bit. coated the floors, and a few other odds and ends. i'm very close to putting the interior back in

i also went through all of my reference materials. i frequent the ti articles often lol

Damn that sucks. My basement has been wet a few times, but never with enough water to trash the stuff on shelves, like my spare seats and other car parts. I did lose the bottom drawer of a filing cabinet though, with most of my warranty paperwork for everything my wife and I own. That sucked a bunch.
