    floor pan

    Im still in the planning/fund raising/getting permission from the misses stage but im planning on using either JC11 Celloseal or Duralac jointing compound. Both will protect against dissimilar metal corrosion and should give you some protection from water getting in through the floor pan aswell...

    floor pan

    + 1 for 5251. Used it at work on some more robust aircraft panels, should work a treat for a floor pan! Its more like a mid-strength Ally and like Brett says its got good corrosion properties.

    Stocking my garage, what tools to get?

    Does no one use air drills as well as rivet guns? A pneumatic gun for your pop rivets is also pretty handy, not only quicker and saves your hand from cramp with all those rivet, but they also give a nice consistant well formed rivet.

    life span of aeroquip fuel hose?

    We have aeroquip hoses fail quite often at work, seems to be when they have been left unused and dry for a while they seem quite happy to perish, like people have said already they are only rubber hoses under metal braiding at the end of the day.

    SouthernGT No8

    Are switches like that ok for IVA testing or do you need to put some guards around them first? Slightly off-topic things.... where do you stand with insurance or IVA cert/worthyness if you change your dash and other parts after you pass an IVA test? Does it invalidate anything? Are you 100%...

    bonding cladding?

    Has anyone used PRC, as used in the aircraft world, to bond panels on their cars? Use tons of it at work for wet assembly, think its made by PPG.
