The hole was on the other edge of the bolt hole. The chassis rail had a cylinder with threads in it for the bolt. You can see it still on the crossmember in the before picture(bottom of the member). The rust hole was located so that when you tried to open the bolt the inside snapped off the chassis rail. That tiny hole was in the worst possible spot. I suppose I'll cut out a bigger square piece out and make the holes for the bolts again. No sense in putting tiny patch next to a tiny patch.Not sure I follow?
Regardless, very nice work to date!
I was about to point out that the patch will probably be the last thing to survive.Now, if anything decides to rust through, it'll be the rest of the beam, leaving a pristine patch of beefy metal!
What are you using for rustproofing?
This is a building with nothing but garages. They recently built the whole place, now they fixed the ground in front of the garage. No idea why they wanted us to keep off the pavement. The garage "complex" has a parking lot right next to the garage doors.Does everybody on your street have to park a ways from their garege in that case lest they be blocked in?
Also, that seems like a rather odd inspection requirement. Safety related?
I missed this question. The car is still a 5-seater. Legaly I could just have the seatbelts back there and it would be legal. However, I don't need the attention in the inspection and the seats take less than 5 minutes to throw in. When I get a peoper set of fixed racing seats I will register it as a 2-seater.Also, that seems like a rather odd inspection requirement. Safety related?
I have to look in to the online part at some point. I heard it was cheaper, but that's a good deal cheaper. If you have fixed back racing seats(something I plan to do at some point) they will give you grief for not getting it registered as a 2-seater. And you can legaly remove the rear seat belts(more weight off the car).Why not declare on/off road online? Only 4? that way.
I paid 20? to get Buick registered for 6 people, even though the original marking of 5 was the inspectors fault anyway... The list price for it was 60? but the dude said himself that it would be a legal robbery for just changing one number on the papers.
But I was wondering, why would you register it for two anyway? I see no advantage on that.
