itís only a four foot lift but Iím still able to get underneath and get at everything and it turns things like dropping the oil into a half hour job

Well with the weeks now flown by since my last post I thought id best update the thread.

Not that there's much to report as I've not had a huge amount of time available to get stuck in but I've now got it to a point where it can sit until I tackle the mucky job of stripping off the dreaded Waxoyl.

There were still plenty of bit's to take off on my return but there all stowed away now and we're are ready to go

Its been like Christmas all over again with all the parcels turning up over the last week but there all for a good course.

The other half kindly treated me to a rotisserie last year before all this started and I've managed to get it set up and trialled it over the weekend.

What a pleasure it is to work with and I'm sure it will make working on the underside a breeze.

I've got some broken bolts to remove that I'm going to get out before the pain staking process of removing wax begins

Hire someone with a dry ice machine to have the underside cleaned up in a couple of hours..

I'm nearly ready to start applying the rust bullet but I would like to know what people found to be the best proses of doing so.

I've almost got it all back to bare steel and once completed I was going to key up the steel to give it a good base to stick too.

Looking at Rustbullets website my best understanding of the proses is as follows.

Apply one coat of Rust Bullet Automotive, give it 2-3 hours curing time then apply the seam sealer followed by the next two coats 3-4 hours apart then leave it over night before finishing it off with the Dinitrol 447 stone guard in the morning.

How have other people done this or does the above sound about right ?

Thanks in advance

It's about time for an update as there's been a bit of progress in the stripping.

I've been drilling out the broken bolts and tapping them out ready for the new bolts when it all goes back together thankfully they all came out fairly easily and the original threads were in good condition.

The under body is almost done with just the rear arches to finish and the engine bay to do (I can safely say its been the dirtiest me and my garage has ever been)I've still got some of the little nooks and crannies to do which will probably take longer than you could ever anticipate but it will keep me up at night if its not perfect.

I'm going to key up all of the under body in prep for the Rust Bullet to give it a good base to stick too so I'm a little while off painting yet but this is how it stands today.

Quick update in regards to today's little job, that's the front and rear screen's removed, still in one piece and all good to go back in once needed.

well I can honestly say stripping the under body seal and stone chip is a mind numbing operation that never seams to end its as if it breads out of all the little corners but I've finished stripping and all I need to do now is panel wipe everything down and mask up ready for the Rust bullet

Awesome, not sure how I missed this one. Makes my little refresh seem like childs play. Looking forward to seeing more updates as I may tackle the underside on mine come winter time, maybe.

It's by no means a quick or easy task but it will be worth while doing.
I'm all ready thinking my original thought of being complete in 12-18 months is going to be out the window but I suppose it just takes as long as it takes
