Two days ago I started covering up the lower rear window with sheetmetal. Then I found out that the rear door was rusting from the inside out. Three of my rivets just came right out making huge holes just above the window.
I took the sheetmetal and rivets off, then filled the holes with liquid nails, sanded them down and put on a coat of primer. I will have to cut a new sheet that extends past the thining metal area.
Then last night I set about hooking up the hot water to my kitchen faucet (only the cold water has been hooked up). Once I got everything connected and had taken the old plug off the hotwater valve. I turned the pump on and everything went crazy. The hot water valve had completely rusted away in the stagnant water.
So it was off to Lowes to get a new faucet. This time I got one with a spray nozel which I connected under the sink for use as a utility water source. This new faucet is VERY nice, not only does it look good but the water no longer comes out in spurts and gets thrown every place. Now the stream is smooth and more centralized. (Moral: Hook up the hot water valve to cold water if you aren't using a water heater, otherwise it will rust away.)
