Under body protection

A bit of a mile stone was reached yesterday with the welding on the floor finished.

This was the last bit that needed doing which was at the trailing edge of the right rear wheel arch.

After this all the underseal was removed using a hot air gun and scraper. After this I went over the whole floor pan and wheel arches with a knotted wire wheel in the angle grinder.

This most be the most dangerous tool I own but it does such a good job of removing rust, paint and underseal.

After the underseal was removed I seam sealed and the joints and weld repairs with polyurethane sealer.

And then coated everything in plenty of Dinitrol 447 stone chip.

Next job is to repair and make the front wings fit (they are miles out at the moment).
