What about grinding out the pits and then filling with body solder?

Seems like body solder might be tough to do perfectly, since you can't sand it. I'd suggest grinding all the rust spots clean, hit the bare metal with Rust Encapsulator, and then fill over it.

We also, here in the States, have these guys: http://www.rustbusters.com/

I wonder if there is a similar service available in Japan?

Thanks for the suggestions, I'd really like to use some POR 15, but I haven't got a clue as to where I could get it here in this country. That's alright, I'm out of money this month anyways, haha, gives me plenty of time to think about it.

On a side note, I made it on Speedhunters!
Check it out!

You might be on Jalopnik this weekend as well. I linked this thread to Murilee Martin, one of the top writers for the website. He emailed me back saying your project was cool and he'd try to make a post about it, so keep your eyes open!

Best Regards...Nigel

Thanks for the comments all!
That would be insane if I made it to Jalopnik, haha!

Anyways, a quick update. I headed out and got some more parts off!

Decided to get the front fenders off today (not easy since most of the fender bolts were composed entirely of rust, haha).

Image

A closer shot of the steel under the fender, its unbelievably clean!

Image

That is one tiny fender, haha!

Image

Driver side.

Image

Fenders and hood up against the wall.

Image

Got the lower trim piece removed.

Image

Then since we were on a roll, we decided to take off all the ducting around the engine and pull off the carb.

Image

Image

The butterfly valve on the carb is tiny!

Image

The float window.

Image

Looks like this is why it was running so bad. A dirt dobber decided to build a nest right in the middle of the venturi!

Image

She was running by air moving through a pin hole in the nest! unbelievable that she ran like that!

Image

The generator and starter are one piece at the front of the engine which the fan is attached to. This is the plate for it.

Image

There were a few engines made for this car. In late 1967 they switched over to a reed valve design and the horsepower jumped from 18 to 21 hp! I was curious which engine this had in it, so we got a light down the intake manifold and snapped a few pictures. Definitely a reed valve!

Image

That's all for now!
Thanks again everyone for the motivation! I can't wait to get this thing on the road!
Cheers
David

Will you take the windshield off? What are you going to do about the rubber, Are you going to try to save it?

Thanks for the comment eduardo, I intend to leave the glass in for the paint job. I know it's not the best solution, but the rubber for this car is for all intents and purposes, unattainable. So I figure the best option is to do a really good job masking and call it good at that, haha.

I got out and took a few more things off today, rust was pretty bad in some places so it's definitely looking like I'm going to have to buy a sand blaster.

Got the fuel tank and oil tank out.

Image

Image

Headlights, trim, battery tray and hood hinges.

Image

Image

There are a few more things I'm going to pull out of the engine bay and then it's time to start masking things up and cleaning off rust. After that, paint and then re-assembly!

Cheers
David

Mrs 75wagon has been enjoying looking at this post too. She just told me that she's a bit sick of all the other crap I show her, but this build is cool and she hopes to see more...

Holy crap, on Jalopnik! Unbelievable!
Thanks so much for sending it in to them Joe! I couldn't believe my eyes this morning!

Image

The downside is, like Ben said, that I blew one big hole in my bandwidth limit, haha. Photobucket has always been solid for me (been using them for like 5 years now) so I threw em some money and went Pro. No limits now!

Datsunfreak, I'm surprised you know what a dirt dobber is, haha! Definitely a Texan term.

75wagon, thats awesome that Mrs. 75wagon finds my build cool, I'll definitely keep the updates rolling in!

Thanks everyone so much for all the inspiration!
I can't wait until my next paycheck so I can go buy a sand blaster!

Cheres,
David

No prob Dave, glad you approve! You're a big hit in the comments as well, seems like everybody wants their own 360 now! You have a lotta people cheering you on man, show 'em what you can do.

Just stumbled upon this thread - great find! Would love to see more pics of the car as it goes along. I'd also be interested in putting some pics up somewhere at www.oldcolts.com.au if possible. The site doesn't have much on the pre-65 Mitsubishis so far.

Woohoo! I made it on the best blog of them all, JNC's blog! Thanks Ben for posting it up!

Image

Only thing holding me back now is... money, haha.
Old Colts in Oz, feel free to grab as many pictures as you want! That's a pretty sweet site you've got going on too!

Thanks all for the support, everyday all I can think about at work is what I need to do next on her, haha.

Cheers
