Jun 5, 2011 update on P71's 1973 AMC Javelin


update image

One of the worst areas of rust on the Javelin is pretty common amongst all cars, the battery tray. At some point in it’s life some acid leaked onto it and it was heavily destroyed. Luckily these are both removable and remanufactured. Since my new one is on it’s way I had to remove the old one. Two bolts came out without much grief, but the third and final one required some chiseling, some choice words, and one gouge to my forearm (hooray for cleaning rust out of bloody wounds!) to come loose. It’s all out and prep work on the metal underneath can begin.
