Sorry, I did not include a ‘post pressure wash’ photo in last post as stated.
Results of the pressure washing and brushing, I have since hand wiped the underside of the car. Seriously as ‘rust free of a car’ you could ever hope to find!
All the F85’s bodies were built as automatics. If it was a 4 speed order they cut a hole in the transmission tunnel and welded in the bigger hump. All of them were done like this and the actual hole was rather roughly cut and they are all slightly irregular to the next 4 speed car. If you didn’t know better you would swear someone did a conversion: well yes it was – but it was done like this at the factory. I am happy I have the protecto plate to prove it was a factory 4 speed as you seriously question that when you see it. The bottom portion of the firewall and tunnel was sprayed with a heavy undercoating which some of it survived Haz-Mat Man’s attack. We have since recoated it.
