Decided to attack the underbody of the Hako over the pass couple months.
You never know what lurks bellow the surface. It was nice to expose the good, the bad, and THE UGLY!

Image
Overall not bad, Getting ready for a little POR 15 but need to take care of some spots first!
Both rails under doors have some pin holes. The worst rust area is behind the driver side rear wheel...

Cutting these bushings out not to bad after you know what the heck your doing. Newbie requires extra Research time so I dont mess anything up...

And more sanblasting and more sandblasting my damn driveway looks like a beach front

After blasting, Marine clean, Metal ready, then POR 15 with a top coat looks pretty good so far!

It's always a case of, "I'll just look at this and see how it is...ok, I'll treat this bit. What's that over there, I'll treat that as well..."

It never ends lol :D

But now that it's done, and done right, you'll always have peace of mind.

It looks great! Nice work

That is a solid looking car to start with. Looks good so far. The Hayashis are sweet! I do understand the draw of the watanabes. Do you have any plans for upgrades while you have it apart? LSD, axles, brakes?

looks great dude, where the rear end bolts up to the floor it is located by two pins that protrude form the floor itself. What bushes are used between the floor and the subframe on yours?
