Let me introduce you to the concept of California Rust. Out here, we don’t kill our vehicles via road salt (because 98% of the state gets no snow), but we have our own version: the sun cooks weatherstripping and rain leaks in all winter and spring, sitting stagnant under the carpet. Repeat for a few decades and plenty of vehicles with pristine frames, rockers and quarter panels have Flintstones-grade floors. Such is my Wagoneer.
Welding makes great footage, but really makes up about .0001% of the hours of any body work activity. The rest is grinding and sanding. Today, we’re going through some of the basic setup to exorcise the ferrous oxide demons from my floors. Roll down your sleeves and put in your earplugs; it’s about to get sparky.
Hooniverse Garage is brought to you by Valvoline. We’re already fans of the brand, so teaming up to bring you focused wrenching content is a no brainer. Enjoy!
