Well after weeks of scrapping 1/4 inch under seal from inner arches ,now its gone had to scrape it first then use wire wheel then wash with white spirit back to red oxide primer, a few repairs have been done all solid but not that happy with the way they've been done will sort out once its been blasted .




Then Ive had to scrape floor pans ,sills and turret of same black *****

As you can see repairs to floor done badly so new floor pans will be fitted also going to put new sills on to although not to bad i want to see what lurks inside in the way of rust

Decided to strip most of paint myself before going to be bead blasted so as little basting as paint and primer filler of blasting can do the final cleanup .

Car is pretty solid apart from floors need to have a proper look underneath once its back from being blasted ,will be blasted and zinc primed soon inside and out not underneath yet as i want to get the repairs to body sorted first, Then put on a rotisserie and sort the underside out in a more accessible position

This is only some of what has been scraped off about 3 bucket fulls

Here you are bidding on a typical uk Z car
As you can see it needs slight attention to the bodywork else its in great shape
Buyer must arrange their own bags to collect

Thanks Terry must admit started of with a scraper after a week found a much better tool a multi tool with vibrating blade peels the worst of under seal off saves fingerprints looking at what you and others have done and the standards this also has to be good when done

Cheers Derrick

Well done for carrying on. I hated scraping stuff of the bottom and inside of mine. Worth it in the long run!
