    One issue with rodents is the scent they leave behind attracts new ones.
    The rodent proofing company next door to my shop uses a product called "Critter out" that neutralizes the urine and feces smell as well as the nesting scent.
    I routinely go into attics after they have done an abatement, after they spray that stuff, you can't tell rats were ever there.

    What I did on my '73 is vacuum out as much crap as I could after I stripped the interior, then sprayed the doors, roof and floor with a 30/70 Bleach and Water mix. After it all dried, I bought this spray called SCOE 10X (Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator) Smell has been gone ever since

    It is worth the effort, rat smell is annoying and it seems to last forever.

    If you use lavender or lemon scented bleach, it also helps.

    My son and his friend came over today and put in the rear end and the master cylinder rod.

    Unfortunately, I fell yesterday and hurt my knee, ankle and back, so I can't get much done.

    Progress has been painfully (get it) slow.

    Ouch! Ya gotta be careful. I've kind of been pushing myself to get Babe's engine work done so I can get her out of the shop, but having a knee and hip that want to drop you on your face makes for slow work. That's why most of the stripdown and reassembly has been done from an office chair.

    Not sure what you mean. Is that a pot reference?

    Pot addicts have created a complex jargon that is rapidly approaching becoming it's own language.

    The ones too stoned to find their belt in the morning and have to walk around holding their pants up all day do that all right.

    After spending most of the day getting quotes in the $300-400, I decided that the hinges are good enough and don't need to be rebuilt.

    I did get the master cylinder and proportioning valve in, so I guess that's a win.
