So I got bored and was looking for a place to mount my new Nitrous system on my car. I’ve seen truck mount them in the rear body work so it got me thinking. Maybe I could do that with my Saturn.



If you think I’m serious shame on you.

The rear reason is I had a killer leak in my truck from that past snow storm. I had about 5" of standing in the right side low spot and some over fill in the spare tire well. :rolleyes:



After crawling in my truck with the hose on the outside I found my leak. Time to do a little work. After about an hour I had my quarter panel off. Pretty easy after I kind figured out what I was doing.

Now that it’s off I can clearly see why it was leaking. :surprised



Holy dry rote! Never thought I would be using a wood chisel on my car. I few min later I had half of it cleaned off.



Holy rusty Saturn! Did not see that coming. So I cleaned it off and put some paint down.





At this point I walked up to Lowes and picked up some silicon.



At this point is started to rain. :WTF After the rain stopped I decided to just go ahead and take the rest of the old crap off and silicon the other half, just to be sure. I bit more rust but I fixed it.



After an hour or so of letting it dry I grabbed the hose and put my niece in the truck this time. STILL had a small leak. :thud: Finding it was coming from the rear this time I laid a nice fate bead again.



That seemed to do the trick. Now to put everything back on.



After about 7 or so hours I was done. :excited:

Took it off the stand went to the store and got myself a good bottle of Bourbon.



:cheers:

Nice work man! :partyon:

If you find that you want something more permanent than silicone, you could always use J/B weld. That stuff is awesome!
Ill keep that in mind if I ever have to do the other side
