Battery box being painted (the run is no longer there)
Trailing arm and coil over removed
What I had to contend with next to the fuel tank?
Cleaned and ground back, very awkward to get to thankfully the Dremel (new one) can get in there
Zinc primer, Seam sealer, stone chip and then top coat applied
Not surprisingly the wheel bearing was not in the best condition
Old v New
I'm trying to keep as many of the original bolts as possible, although rust has eaten a few, sanded back, zinc primer, paint and then laquer, ran them all through the appropriate die to clean up the threads.
Anti roll bar removed ready for the flap disc on the grinder
Back to bare metal
Repainted and lacquered
RARB Brackets repainted in Por15
Brake caliper carrier restored, all rust and contamination removed, primed, painted and lacquered in VHT paint
Subframe and trailing arms now being sandblasted ready for collection next week (these are donor items and are in better condition than my own)
The reason I am having to do this now. 15 years and counting
