Started pulling out the 1987 once maroon but now yellow carpeting only to find, to my dismay, that the driver's side was wet from last nights rain. No idea why since none of the windows were down. I got as far as doing the front third and came in for some tea and a safety meeting.

Still haven't picked new flooring.

Changed the fuel pump,straps and connector. Aside from dealing with the rusted on bolts it wasn't as bad as i thought.

Went down to Brian's so he could weld the exhaust up on my 94. The doggone tailpipe slipped out of the muffler again. I even had the correct clamp on there. Oh well..he welded it up.

I also pulled the 85 out and got the side doors aligned almost perfectly. Now the gaps are pretty much even all the way around.

Considering it's been months since I washed and waxed Walter (my van), I decided to bring out the turtle wax and give ol' wally a bath and a good wax. Then later on in the day I decided to get off my butt and go to the home depot and grab some grinding discs and spray paint and attend to the horrid frame rust and corrosion that is starting to take over on Walter.

Tomorrow I am going to be jacking up the rear end and pulling out the axle shafts to replace those 16 year old axle bearings and seals. Rear end has been getting a little bumpy and figured to replace the bearings and take a look at the differential and whatnot! But hopefully it won't turn out to be an expensive repair, already put thousands in parts and hours in labor into walter.

I also am going to try to bleed the rear brakes tomorrow. Couple weeks ago I took the wheels off to check the axle shafts play and one of the brake drum bars was bent so I took a hammer to it and flattened it out, now my brakes need to be bleed again. But hey better then crashing!

I will also do a little more rust removal, I have so much more to do it's not funny.

I did what was planned and replaced the rear axle bearings and seals. Thankfully the axle shafts are in perfect condition so my worries are over. I also bleed the rear brakes, pedal isn't that spongy anymore!

I didn't get to test drive it cause the tank is on E and so is the wallet! LOL
Oh yea and did some more rust removal, it's coming along. Slowly but surely!
