Just wanna throw this out there....... Spray in expanding foam insulation is not a good way of fixing rust. I have seen some weird things people have done over the years but this one beat them all. Someone used expanding foam spray to fill in the missing rusted section on a body mounting brace and then used bindi and undercoating to hide their "repair". Can't believe anyone would do something like this.

That will be cool. After all these years I know it will be great to see her come back to life. It is so much more fun to build than repair. Get to it.

Well I got a little merging of threads. Over at on the Trivia thread I posted a photo of this vacuum canister from the power brakes on my bosses 56 Plymouth. I asked him if I could have it for my Gran Sport and he said sure. You see my motor has a pretty radical cam and all I have is 10 inches of vacuum at idle, needing about 18 the power disc brakes can be an issue. I have never been happy with how this car stopped, needing lots of pedal pressure. Well at 1200 rpm I have about 23 inches so I figured if I had a canister to save that vacuum so when I stopped I could use it, hmmmmm. So I brought home the canister and I'll see if it will help.

It fits right in there behind the right headlamp.
