New sections formed for the outside of rear corner.
The entire roof was pitted with rust spots that had been sprayed over with thick yellow spray putty and paint.
All of it ground back to bare metal, treated and primed.
A long dirty dusty job.
Primer starting to appear and take over.
Its a great relief to be getting somewhere.
Internal floor cleaned.
Inside and out for 2 pac primer.
Doors painted internally.
Dash area further stripped to get ready for paint.
Engine bay paint.
More and more masking, tons of it.
And the outside of the doors.
Don't know about you, but I get exhausted just looking at all this work we have done as I am posting it.
Day by day we just keep plodding along but when it all goes together on here, wow!
Good job, well repaired which will provide another lifetime of kombi fun.
Milestone today, 15th May, final top coat of paint on.
Smooth as a baby's bum.
No rest though.
I've been assembling the engine and ready to mate it to the gearbox.
Will be fish oiling the whole body first in a day or so.
Well a hint and you've certainly delivered with the pictures and added the story on this one.
Brilliant work you do
Thanks Kahuna, yes, the hint prompted me.
I photograph all the work we do mainly for future reference like perhaps a new owner to see what has been done.
There is still more to this story though.
Thanks for following it.
Come and have a look sometime.
Nearly always here except for when I'm not
Today was unmasking the body and think about the reassembly.
Ordered plenty of new genuine( where possible) parts and rubbers.
Dug out the dash and found that even it had rusted.
Usual story. cut out the bad part, make a new one, weld it in, repair, paint and reassemble.
Wow, such incredible work, well done, another one saved!!
Thanks for taking the time recently to post all the pics.
My pleasure, cheers .
I also hope that people learn something from all of this.
Maybe get ideas or inspiration.
I have no qualifications, just learn as I go.
