Default Bit of an undercoating removal update

(Taking longer than I hoped - but doesnīt it always?)





More original paint =>



Unfortunately similar bitumen based undercoating has been used on the inside of the boot as well...





Pain in the backside (if you ask me)

####

A few more rust holes have been found but all things considered it is in pretty good condition - some rectification work is needed but thatīll be done in a jiffy (yeah right)

Looks pretty good. Mine needed a replacement rear boot floor and some work to the spare wheel well.

Incidentally, the inside of my boot is also black. Perhaps that was the original colour that all boot interiors were painted?

Iīve done a bit of asking about for that and all of the period advertising stuff shows the inside boot colour to be the same as the exterior.

Iīm expecting to find the original beige under the black goo (that most certainly isnīt original) when I start the wire brushing - if I donīt Iīll report back (!)

Oh My! See, that's the sort of thing I'm trying to avoid on mine. But in the process, I'm likely to be applying rather than removing the "black goo".

Trying to avoid knowing about it?

Put it this way: What was it like the first time you needed to adjust valves? What was it like the first time you changed a timing chain / timing belt? What was it like the first time you dealt with a broken crankshaft?

Dealing with rust is much like any other automotive problem - it is dealt with by many many mechanics - so how hard can it be?

#####

Iīm actually really impressed with the purchase I made - it is 99% solid - the car is older than me - I need more help than that car!

Default Quick quick!

It is warm enough for paint!



Bit by bit - de-rusted - treated - epoxied - Eastwoods chassis black

I wanna get this done and dusted so I get the chance to do the same to my series 2a Land Rover before the cold weather turns up again

After a bit of wire brushing I can confirm that my carīs boot was definitely painted in the body colour.

I was at the PC Restoration show at the weekend, several PV's on display, although none being reconstructed. I should have had a look in the boot of one of them.
Nice beige one on one stand, (same colour as your original?) 1964 it claimed, although the badging was slightly different to mine.
