Thanks Jon for your comments.

Seems like every repair previously done on this car has been carried out in the same fashion ,thats why its taking so long to put right, as i go to replace one piece i end up replacing everything around each area

Thanks Ped

Heroic or Mad is there a difference

Perhaps i should stop looking for inner rust but i do want to try and make this a good rust free car otherwise a waste of time imo still like the challenge ,I think
