Next Job

The N/S inner wing is now in primer and seam sealer which is a massive relief. I laid down two coats last night and also did the lower half of the bulkhead. Not a pretty photo, but shows the progress made. The primer will protect the metal whilst other work takes place. The white stuff is POR15 seam sealer which I’ve put on tonight. When the time comes and runs and other imperfections will be sanded down and the whole thing gets painted in a special tie coat primer before being top coated.


Some of you may notice one or two additions and general tidying up has taken place. I’m looking for a nice clean look to the engine bay when it’s finally all done.

The next job it to get the suspension on and the engine/gearbox back in so I can figure out some other bits and pieces, but having had a look tonight underneath where the beam mounts on and the fuel tank sits there may be quite a bit that needs to be tackle to tidy it up. Behind the underseal there’s some surface rust to tackle, but nothing serious on first inspection. So I may need to find another way to move the shell around to free up half the space in the double garage for my new project.

Bit More Strippage

Engine Bay

Finally managed to get the steering column and rack disconnected last night. Very easy in the end, it was just a job I’d been putting off. The rack unbolted without any drama and pedal box came out simply too. Fair bit of gunk and some algae lurking behind there so spend the rest of the evening just giving it a clean with degreaser. Hoping to get pretty much a full weekend on it so hopefully should see some real progress being made.
