May 2009 I looked at this T3 SC. It's had a hard working life, and was needing a good home. It's more of a project than I was after, but I couldn't walk away, risking it going on to hard labour without proper maintenance, and ending up as scrap metal - the metal that had not rusted away in the future, that is. Needless to say, it followed me home. So a few pics at purchase time: It was not without issues, that needed attention. At some stage it had a "blow over" of almost the same white, but unknown type of paint, complete with runs and areas of flaking do to poor or zero prep work. I decided that a bare metal start, would ensure a good bond for new paint, and also reveal any hidden issues. So the choices were, a heap of sanding, sending it off for sand or bead blasting, or paint stripper. Looking at an alternative to the mess and metal pitting of blasting, I opted for a non toxic, biodegradeable product that I could use at home, called "PEELAWAY 8" It's applied in a coat of paste 3-5mm thick, then sealed with the supplied paper to keep any air out: Then I continued on the rest of the panels, and left it on minimum of 3 days. 3 Days later, it was time to peel away the paper, with the paint attached. Anything left, was soft enough to remove with a scraper. The end result was lots of shiny bare metal everywhere!
