Looks like you have put some serious hours into that, not nice laying under a car working.
Does your SGS jack stay up with weight on it?

There is very little rust on anything.. Gearbox mounting I'm going to either plate or paint just blasted at the moment.

I will upload images later when I have found a way to use Flickr

Evening all,

So now all the arches front and back , floorpan, are all down to bare metal and phosphated. So next up is paint. First things first, before any painting can be done you need to measure the Dew Point of the room. This is done by using a Dew Point calculator available on line. You need to input the humidity, air temp and metal temp (using a magnetic temp gauge). You need to be a min of 5 deg above Dew Point otherwise the paint will fail because the metal is in danger of sweating.

Once all this was sorted first job is to "Stripe Coat" all the edges and seams . Basically its loading up all the sharp edges to make sure the paint is thick enough. This was applied with a brush, please bare in mind. This whole job was "Function" over "Form" .

Again I went to Rust.co.uk and purchased their white epoxy mastic 121, fantastic product. Far superior to air drying products such as rust bullet. This stuff is a 2 part 50 / 50 mix hence the name and it cures to AARD.
