Default 1965 Mustang rust repair

This week we have a new project that needs a little rust repair. The first thing we have to do is the cowl and floor.

This is what we found after removing the outer cowl panel





Next Brian drilled out all the spot welds on the lower cowl

Perfect example of how a decent looking driver can be hiding all kinds of evil...

A few more pictures. The owner knows it needs a lot of work but she wants to save a Mustang.

That sound you heard was my jaw hitting the desk...wow!

The floors and toe pans really illustrate how a leaky cowl can escalate rust to a whole new level.

Mind didn't look that bad but I still ended up replacing the cowl, firewall, and one piece floor.

wow i mean wow. I did a double take in my mind because i believe that my cowls are intact but i do have small rust that can be seen underneatht the car on the floor pans that dont seem like they have made it past the inside shell and i grinded and painted the whole underside of the car so i know where the rust is. i have mabye like 5 nickel - quarter size holes. I am scared to pull back the carpet now. o and the only reason why the floors rusted is because the driver side door was off the track so it did not seal correctly so rain just got in their and soaked into the carpet.
