Oh no! I saw a longer post and thod oh great, a sucsessfull woodgas drive report already. But bad news…
I am with Max here. I have no dubt you will finish your Mazda in a months time, then you wuld have plenty of time for a body work.
I am sure once you start digging in you will find lots of hidden flaws, and if you plan to keep the Rabbit, its best to fix and protect for a lot more years to come.
Looks like we will both be looking in rust holes this spring, my Mercedes needs both frame beams new. When l jacked the car up for a tire swap, the jack just sunk in the doorstep
Max, JO mentioned once his new truck has legal carryadge weight of about 1200kg, so he can carry the whole Rabbit on that Mazda
