Found out that my heater core has sprung a major leak. Coolant is streaming out the bottom of the box.

*sigh*

None, I had existing holes from the folding jump seats. I used a few interior push in "buttons/fasteners" in some of the holes I didn't seal up. on the vertical plane the seatbelt bolts provide some help.

Chemically derusted passenger side seat frame, primed with Procryl, zinc electroplated wear items, springs, and repainted.

And in the category of useless, weird mods, I am switching the floor panels from the stock aluminum to 6Al-2Sn-4Zr-2Mo Titanium plate. UTS is 3.5x greater than 6061-T6, 3x hardness, 74% increase in stiffness. Weight is increased by 2x, offset somewhat by reducing thickness by about 25%.

Reasons for evaluation: Purported extreme salt corrosion resistance, low galvanic potential with aluminum due to robustness of titanium dioxide film (compared to chromium oxide on stainless), and wear resistance since the paint on the aluminum floor plates seem to experience wear from shoes/gravel.

Yes, this is useless
