haven't had chance to do much recently but did get chance to drop off the n/s sill cover. The sill is in surprisingly good shape and not much rust to be found, certainly no holes so that side won't need any welding. Also dropped off the wing, the build-up of crud behind the wheel spat was quite surprising

had a few hours free the other day so decided to make a start dropping the rear suspension, took hours just to get this far due to rusted bolts and bolts breaking etc. All the bolts that go through the bushes on the suspension arms are rusted solid to the metal spacers within the bushes so am having to grind the bolts off either side of the bush just to get the arms off. Haven't even started the other side yet.

The strip down has been continuing, all rear suspension and subframe/crossmember are off the car. To get all this off i've had to grind the bolts off on either side of each bush as the bolts were locked solid to the tube running through the bush.

Rear bumper etc is also now off, bit tatty looking but could have been worse.

View inside the chassis rail where the bumper hangers bolt in place, got a bit of work to do in there.

I was grinding back all the rust on the subframe which at first seemed to be pretty solid. Got to one of the last flat bits when this hole opened up, will be sourcing a new subframe.

next to come off is the petrol tank, fuel & brake lines then i can start to clean up the underside ready for a fresh coat of rust proofing and paint.

over the last couple of weekends i've dropped the fuel tank, filler neck and fuel lines. Just the exhaust, brake lines and h/brake cables to remove then i can start prepping the underneath for the rust proofing and paint.



more pics of each stage can be found on photobucket http://s1368.photobucket.com/user/ro...%20June%202104

This weekend i've cleaned up the filler neck which was pretty rusty. Ground it all back to metal as far as possible and then gave it the full POR15 treatment.

haven't had the carpets up yet but the floorpans and chassis rails are solid, i just don't think it's ever been cared for in it's 14 year life. It was also based up a farm track from the previous to one owner so i guess it's sat in mud and wet grass for a while. The build up of crud behind the spat is common on these and needs checking every couple of years, that again i would say is 14years worth of crud.

it's been a while since my last update but things have been moving on, the underside of the car is now completely stripped and i've started removing the old underseal on one of the rear inner arches.



Have also cleaned back and treated the fuel tank straps with por15, these are also now in paint

Have refurbed and rust treated one of the rear knuckles

Also made a start repairing the rear ARB, you can see where it has worn away where both bushes go, it's about 1mm thinner in both areas than it should be.

Lashed on the chemical metal, with this stuff it's best to put on too much and then when it's cured a bit smooth it over.

Smoothed over and looking better, once totally cured i should be able to sand or grind it to final shape and end up with an ARB that's 17mm in diameter again!

Have also ground back, rust treated and painted both track control arms.

Got lots of grinding and prep work to do on the body, will do the other suspension parts in between to break things up a bit.
