Did you know they sell JB Weld in an economy size??
I have so many rust holes between the oil pan and the axle covers I just decided to grind them down and give a good coat of JB weld.
as for the Brakes... they have made major headway today. I have the entire system back together and the only thing I broke today was my flairing tool. as of right now I have to re install the drums & hubs, and bleed the brakes. I was even able to get the rusted off line ends out of the master & proportioning valve. so far so good.
