Great update, loving the seats looking forward to next update.
Awesome mate! Did you remove rust completely prior to painting, or just Waxoyl over top as it's a converter/treatment? Ask as i've started on mine, and its an absolute b*stard trying to d through speaker holes blind.Right then! Finally had chance to put my new trim removal tools to work and have a look at the inner sills through the rear speaker holes. I removed the rear bench for better access to the speaker trim panels first and glad I did:
Only a bit of surface rust, but not having that! I removed the seat belts & buckles, then prepped and painted with Hammerite 'direct to rust' gloss black:
Right, onto the inner sills:
Not too bad, and just surface rust. You can see where I had the plates welded in from earlier. I removed the scab of rust from the passenger side where the new plate was welded in and used a can of Waxoyl Rustproofing on both inner sills - kills old rust / prevents new rust:
And the results, looking much better in there:
I cleaned up all the dust on the trim behind the speaker grills, gave the rear bench the Woolite treatment, and got the speakers, trims and rear bench all refitted.
And that's the latest on the car, more to come......
Ha ha that's been my trick to see progress, camera with flashThanks mate :smt023
I previously had that area cut out and plated/welded (earlier in the thread). The rest of the surface corrosion on the inner sills, I originally coated with Jenolite rust converter on both sides. I then decided to use the Waxoyl rust treat / rust protect to keep it treated and protected, and also to make it more aesthetically pleasing all in black. The good thing with the hammerite, is that the spray nozzle works on any angle of the can.
I kept spraying, then using my phone's video camera with flash to see where I'd missed, then kept spraying and repeating till I'd coated it all.
Yeah, access to that area is awful. You've done well to get a wire brush down there! I feel sorry for your knuckles!
No problem mate, don't think there's such a thing as overkill on rust with these cars!! :lol:Ha ha that's been my trick to see progress, camera with flash
I'm probably going to take your advice with the Waxoyl after removing as much as possible. Peace of mind it's protected as much as possible then. Probably going to finish with Hammerite direct to rust silver just for rust overkill too.
