    So how you doing them? Are you straightening the frames up then hanging the doors or shaping the door to fit the holes?

    Now going out for half hour to play then groceries and back to play again :)

    Sunny Sunday and I attacked it with gusto, well sort of, I got the spanners out and the grinder out to play for a little while.

    Decided to get the RH inner wing de-rusted and cleaned up, needed to get it properly primed too as the Bonda wants 24hrs drying before applying another solvent based paint, I want to get it seam sealed and painted with the black Hammerite tomorrow night.

    Got the scraper out to get the worst of it off the inner wing top.

    The white powdery stuff is from the chemical reaction between bare steel and bare aluminium.

    IMG_20190512_142023.jpg

    Pinged out the spire clips and hit it hard with the wire brush on the drill and wiped it clean with meths ready for painting.

    From a rusty mess to red primer.

    Had to slice and dice a nut and bolt on the passenger seat to allow me to get that out of the way, and while I was there I decided that it would be fun to poke the sill to see how bad it was.

    Well, it wasn't pretty, at all........

    Ho hum, there is indeed a length of box section to replace it and happy days will come again when I get that welded in.

    I also got a prezzie in the post.

    So I have a good bit of work to do and I also have a decent underbody protection to go on and keep the tin worm at bay in the future.

    More in a few days I reckon.

    @The Mad Hat Man pneumatics not in my store yet :(

    But on a brighter note, i am outside working on me truck :)

    Now the ****!t bit, you'd a thought that the new olives would be included with the sender, well, not on your life and nope, cant even get the old ones off :mad:

    IMG_20190515_185722.jpg

    Sodding 8mm things too, only ever seen them in 3/8the ~ 10mm in B&Q so not holding out there, bugger :(.

    I'm guessing Gotty in Alton will have them but no chance of getting there before they close after work, male order i guess but then Friday at best maybe Saturgay¿

    Hmmmmmmn :rolleyes:

    Guess I'm going painting for an hour, good job I only pulled the return line off so I can park it back up again lol.

    Just tap them gently around the outside and it will expand the olives.

    They're off the fuel sender steel pipes that are rotted out, they were rusted onto the pipe solid, no drama, buy new and do it right, might even get new nuts for them ;)

    Did slap some paint on the beast though to while away an hour :)

    Went from this

    IMG_20190512_161559.jpg

    To this :)

    Looking like new galvanised shock towers will be on order very soon as these are a bit blown and it would only be right to get them replaced with good quality ones that will last.

    Should get a bit more done tomorrow night all being well and that will feel like progress again has resumed.

    OK I've still got the radius arms to re-bush and the panhard rod but they ought go fast.

    Nah, just regular ones, these are +3" shocks and if I drop them any further the front springs will end up dislocating which is not in any way my intention.
