Sent the driver side tie rod off to HBI Engineering for the ball joint to be rebuilt. Then I can re-fit that, adjust the exhaust, and drive the car to bed the brakes in a bit more and get a quote on fixing that rusty hole in the sill.

How did the people doing the other body repairs miss that rusty piece?

I have no idea! It's directly below one of the holes in the bodywork so should have been obvious.
I do recall a discussion that we wouldn't fully strip and repaint the underside, but that all the holes needed to be fixed. Maybe they took that to mean ignore the underside and don't check it. I don't know.
It got to the point where I think they wanted it done and out of there despite them having had it for months before starting it.

It will remain a mystery!

Dirty car:



Tie rod had returned from HBI Engineering and looks like new.


Should be able to get it fitted tonight, tweak the exhaust then get the car back on its wheels again.

Haven't had a lot of time to work on Rusty this weekend but it's back on its wheels with working steering. Plus I picked up this little gadget as the battery seems to be draining itself far too quickly. Might be a worn out battery or something draining it, not sure yet. You can Bluetootth to it from a phone to monitor battery charge.
