Rockers are solid, as is everything under the fenders! The rear tray and firewall need help and the rear apron will require some serious bending.

Bossman, don't look now, but I am ordering some POR-15 this week

Re: The Roach
 
Upper & lower ball joints ordered, POR-15 ordered... what a freaking mess! Amazingly, the steering stuff is all good. Shock upper bolts are frozen solid. So... I had to move everything to get the trailer over by the garage and in range of the air compressor.

Spent the morning prepping my pan for POR-15. I found one more hole, right under the driver's heal. So... there will be a bit more to weld prior to coating.
