Bodge jobs. Bog straight over big rust holes. Found them in both front guards, the doors, sill panels and rear quarters. So pretty much everywhere.

From what i thought was going to be a quick job, sure as hell isnt now... :( *sigh*

Tmrw im cleaning front wheel wells, spraying them black and possibly getting the engine bay in undercoat..

ok. after having a dummy spit, i went out this morning and got stuck in. Cleaned up the inner guard and sprayed it in killrust enamel. theres a rust hole in bottom right, which i will cut out and weld up tonight hopefully.

Seeing this definatly bumps moral up after staring at rust all the time

just a alittle trick i use at work is using alfoil to wrap up and line and parts instead of masking with tape

yeah i noticed few of my mates using that method. might do it for the next mask cheers.

Little update: Got my service manual in the post today which should be a little help when im putting it back together.

ANd this weekend, im picking up a whole 240k for free thats been sitting in a paddock for parts. The bloke is a champ for letting us take it :) will get a few panels i can cut out to replace my rusty ones, will take the whole tail light assembly along with another one the bloke gave me so i will have 3 to fix up. its also got a good passanger seat and few interior bits.

Theres another one sitting there that was used as a rally car! even got a roll cage in it. But wait till you see the pics. the rustiest thing ive ever seen! yet its got mint chrome mirrors on it that i will take.

Im also starting to strip the motor down ready for rebuild. Im thinking: valve seat grind, stem seals, all new gaskets, rings, bearings, hone the bores, maybe port the head a bit. And get the twin carbs reconditioned.

all coming along slowly :)
