Think you need a bigger shed.....
It's nice to have some bits to do again...
Spotty had carpet in the front - not good for going to the beach - so $27.99 on special at Supercheap bought a rubber boot liner that is easily cut with a pair of scissors.
The mat (with the one out of the 75 as a template)
Got his roof racks on for the SUP
Steering wheel repair:
Trying this stuff: It's not cheap at $50 but there is plenty in it and I am sure I will be able to use it for other things
It's a black powder that you sprinkle into the crack then drop the glue onto it and it melts the powder immediately and makes a hard bond.
I then sanded it off:
Next step will be to give it a spray of black paint. There probably is a way to get it all shiny again, but I don't know how. The only black paint I have here at the moment is Plastidip so I won't be using that as it peels off.
When you get bored of the wedding and function runs Melissa, I can see that some paid motor trimming and interior restoration could keep you busy!
Spotty is currently getting a little attention - used a corner bulge cut from a donor - it seems like an odd spot for rust but even the donor cut had a spot starting there too.
You concreted my campsite...?
You’ll be charged car-lot rates by Council soon......
Seam sealer used before mid 75 was not good. Info from 1500king. So the water into the air intake got into the seam on the inside....oh & bog doesn't help. Nice to see Spotty getting some love.
Doing a great job Scott. Looking forward to seeing her, maybe sooner than you think.
We are not doing it ourselves - I am paying someone with the skills - we just sourced the donor metal.
Fingers crossed you see him soon Adrian
Flying up Thursday to BNE. Then if all goes well heading south to be in Melb Tuesday arvo. Will talk once we get on the road.
Fingers crossed Spotty will be back for your visit:
Is it really easier to mask up things like the radio aerial and door mirror, rather than remove them and set aside for the painting process, and then just refit?
This was just meant to be a quick "on the side" job - I did not expect this amount of spray - Scott actually likes how rough Spotty looked before but we had to do something about the rust before it got worse
Fair enough......masking tape is the easiest tool for a spray painter.
Spotty is home.
I understand people's comments about removing bits before paint etc, but this was a quick job to keep him on the road and to get through rego again (next month).
Nice....now just to polish the rest to match the new paint.
Exactly 2 years go today Scott picked up Spotty!! Well look who paid Spotty a visit.. @Mordred
Three good smiles there
Reckon BAY-o75 has the biggest smile after repairs.
Adrian would be happy to see Spotty in such good hands, Melissa.
He actually turned up at the right time to polish the old paint to match the new.
Good work Mordred. Scott says thanks!
