If it was used as a pool chemical hauler it is going to have corrosion in quite a few places depending on what they hauled. Muriatic acid (Hydrochloric Acid) and chlorine will destroy metal. I left a pair of pliers in with the pool chemicals in a chest and it rusted them into nothing within 2 months. Good luck with your project!

Those don't look to be that bad, plenty of options for fixing those. it will all depend on what you comfort level is.

You cant even drop a basketball through those holes... you're good. Lol


I had the same rot in mine. I cut out the rust and patched in new metal (I used rivets and seam sealer... don't like welding sheet metal). Shouldn't be too bad to repair.

I agree whole heartedly. Have a shop bend some metal. I screws my patches in and used polyurethane roofing sealant. That's not bad at all.

today I used an allen wrench and an impact driver to remove about 40 of my seat belt bracket bolts. The rest of them are pretty stuck and will likely have to be drilled out. Time to pick up a nice carbide drill bit!

whew! been a minute since ive posted any pics of the work ive been doing. all the flooring is out, all the seat belt brackets are out, and the rubber on the stairs has been removed. im working on the wall panels, but i have only done one so far. my ospho came in yesterday, so my next goal is to patch my large floor holes, treat for rust with ospho, paint with rustoleum, and then fill the bolt/screw holes with seam sealer.



also, a wasp built a nest in my radiator. not today wasp!
