Started last year,stripping it down,begin rust repairs on drivers side and work
my way round to other side,hoped for less rust on left hand side,turned out
no different,did buy a mig welder from repco,for the diy market works ok, little bit erratic,can weld alright on thicker steel,iam using argon gas mix,prefer
bigger spooled machines.less griding the weld off,sort off.Put some patches in
bottom window corners,and right hand 1/4 panel,pictures showing some of it,i
forgot to take pictures of the process,dont have a good series of pictures.
front A piller and along
drip rail, bad surface rust decided to use the gas welder and brass rods,laying weld over rusty areas,hopefully the heat will kill the rust.As to awkward and to much work cutting out bits,patched some easier bits near the drip rail area,for some areas.Has had a new roof skin in its life,accident I guess, spot welding
drilled out was never mig plugged probably,or seamed seal that well,not
much paint either some areas.
Exposed to the elements,rust resulting.No more welding to be done,three
doors to be finished off, outside only ,just the dents over them.and a few dents repairs ,need re fixing,sand blocking, more filler in low spots as not quite
Lechler expoxy primer is
used.Should of held off buying paint,before doing some rust work and extent of
it.Probaly have chosen cheaper option of primer and paint white paint,instead
of metallic colour. Having a break for now,
start soon,when the light is bit better,and yes iam getting sick off it,felt
like giving up sometimes.Her it is sitting in garage.Regards Rowen.
