Woodwork looks good! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the rust is just nasty looking surface rust and that there are no holes.

Suffering from van withdrawals right now, shes 25 miles away at the exhaust shop. Went to just get the leak fixed, turns out it was leaking because the entire exhaust had rotted out and was just hanging off the manifold. No donuts on a Ford apparently, a stud had broke and the collar was loose. They replaced the stud, got a new turbo muffler ordered for it, should be in and done tomorrow, doing a 2.5" single out in front of the rear tire. Thinking about doing a flat z28 style tip on it. I'll pot up pics when i get her back.

@ Darrin. Jamie is doing it. Had to order parts, so.... hopefully done today. He was right, no donuts. Just the metal ball and socket fitting that was worked loose by the entire weight of the "exhaust" hanging off of it.
