Total hack bulkhead rust repair using a dryer

Not proud of it, but no longer will my floormats fly up and pelt me with rust. Two hours work and that was cutting out some rust with tin snips and waiting for the loctite rust converter to dry. Forgot to take a pic of the drivers side after I screwed it in. If only my seam sealer had not gone hard I would be done, done.

Hell, we got plenty of stainless at the barn, some galvy duct too I think. I guess nothing beats maytag though. Looks good.

I wouldn't post photos like this, you'll end up working at urban land cruisers in no time.

OMG. My eyes hurt. You probably have 10 bulkheads in storage...I pray you just don't have the time to swap it right now...

I only have two new bulkheads for this truck. 😉 One painted to match, one galvy. 🙂

Oh, and it was a kenmore from 2000ish. The maytag from 1993 is still going strong.

So I took the truck to work (60 miles round trip). Why I did not do this years ago is beyond me. Compared to the trip to the rovers club event, it was so much better. After every long weekend trying to talk myself into spending the whole time trying to do a bulkhead (and then talking myself out of it because of fear of snowballing) I no longer have any desire to do a bulkhead (the rest of it is perfect, the floorboards rotted out due to the stupid foam backed factory mats, a broken AC drain, and the gap in the inner fender). I will do the bulkhead swap when I tear it all apart for a full restoration. I am going to do some patches (with an actual welder and pieces cut off the RRC frame I have) on the rear cross member next.

Man, you've got to have some Eastern European blood in you with that craftiness?
Now spray-bomb it and call it an "immaculate nut and bolt restoration" :-)

As long as it wasn’t a Samsung dryer, you’re ok

How do you plan to stop now that your feet can't touch the ground?

Clothes dryer.

Anyone who has seen me knows I have never used a hair dryer.

Please tell me they're no longer in business... I just told someone about that dumpster fire and how I lucked out.
