Figure out where there is a secure place to bolt where there is no rust and than you could always weld longer bolt plates to it..

I would like to rebuild the front disk brake calipers as one of mine is sticking[wont release volvo is a 1984/5 240 gl turbo wagon engine b230e with solid rotors

suprisingly, these are still available new, from volvo,as rebuilding them is NOT reccommended(unless you have specialist tools)you could get "exchange" units from a specialist supplier.(in the UK)chances are the pistons are rusted causing them to stick,you may be able to polish them up?

Need an undercarriage protection for our 2003 chevy blazer - cant find one!

There are any number of commercial protection products available over the counter.. of any auto part store, or online.

In my own humble opinion... Your best protection is regular washing with clean water, and some WD40 on all unpainted surfaces. Any coating you put on will eventually trap moisture and contaminants under it, causing corrosion faster.
Easy way to prevent undercarriage rust is to power wash the entire undercarrage, then spray the entire undercarriage with WD-40 before the onset of winter.

WD-40 displaces water, helping to keep rust under control. Suprisingly, it doesn't come off as easily as you'd think in wet winter driving.
Use use two medium size cans of WD-40 to do all undercarriage, making sure to spray every nook and cranny (but avoiding the brake rotors/pads) until it is saturated.

Believe it or not, one good coating will last all winter--at least enough to prevent rust. Each spring, use a high pressure sprayer to clean the undercarriage and reapply a new coat of WD-40 for the spring/summer/fall months.

A part on my sundance broke It's part of the undercarriage but I don't know what it is.

If you don't know what broke on the undercarriage, have a body technician or front end technician look at it to determine what needs to be replaced or repaired.

Rust can attack the sundance vehicles that I have seen. It's a unibody car, but has some thick metal parts connected which can rust at the connection points.

Good luck to you.
