So last week I go looking for my radiator on the side of my house. I reach down to pick it up and see fur while looking through the fill hole. Turns out a rat decided to make a home in there then die. After pulling him out and washing out the leaves etc. I took it to the local radiator shop for a check up. Passed with flying colors. This past week end I mounted the generator, radiator and front sheet metal. I am going to start the engine for piece of mind before starting on the bodywork.

Glad to hear your radiator is in good shape. Too bad the previous inspector died inside :twisted: .

Big day for Desert Rat. Got the body Dustless Blasted today. Took 4 hrs. but well worth it. And yes, that is a Nissan in a Nissan. :D Now it's time to prime.

Yea as far as rust through they are pretty good. Plenty of dings and dents to work on though. Should keep me busy through winter. :lol:
