    I suppose I’ll paint them.

    Do I need to treat them first, or will a coat of acid etch primer be ok?

    156C9A18-317B-4911-B110-BAB0C0D4F40E.jpeg De-rusted more of front bit, and given coat of Fertan.

    Was going to paint rear, but noticed a bit where I missed the seam sealer, so I sealed it.!!

    Hopefully get some painting in tomorrow if weather’s ok.

    You want T-Wash or Mordent solution to dip them in before you paint, Dulux supposedly makes a paint straight to galv paint but it doesn't work.

    I only weld on the weekends as it's usually a bit late by the time I get home from work :(

    If its nice this weekend then I might take Saturday off and crack on.
