Default Daaaaaaaamn this pig is rusty

I got my car as a not so bad flood victim. Unfortunately it was flooded with salt water and a few coral rocks... (wtf?). So the underside of the car has always looked a little ragged. I decided i wouldnot have this!

Got the car up on stands this weekend and dropped the front and rear subframes. Going to get my cousin to blast them and coat them in some stuff they use for their heavy equipment....tar epoxy or something. All i know is that its black and you can beat on it with a chisel and the **** dont come off.

While undoing the rear braces the forward most bolt on each brace mustve broken off the captive nut on the interior because they are just spinning now, anyone know if this is common or have i boned it? I cant see how to get to the nuts on the other side :(

Side questing, is it possible for just the boots on the ball joints to be changed?

Trivia question of the day, whats different about my cluster?

Teh rustiness

I think it's missing the "you're getting close" lines before the redline indicator.
