    Fish oil be my favourite;).
    Waxoyl doesn't get as far in as needed from the rear arch inner entry. The Wakoyl spray tins I bought didn't have the penetration into the beam that I wanted:(.
    The fish oil is perfect & has done my bus well for lots of years. In heat areas just apply more frequently;). The temp helps it penetrate more:):D.
    Cheers

    Awesome work Brian. Great to see proper metal resurrection.
    A question if I may... Welding panels... TIG or MIG?

    Cheers Brian. Have been interested in finding out what people prefer to use for welding bodywork lately. I've only ever used MIG and oxy before but lately have been looking at the advantages of TIG.

    Have also been gathering parts for my engine rebuild so now they engine bay is almost finished I'll be making a start on the mechanics its getting a full rebuild, upgrade Camshaft & sticking fuel injection on it

    I know it's not technically keeping it original but a little more power and reliability is what I'm hoping for 6042D1DB-79E9-4324-AD26-9A376519CABB.jpeg 97B1AAD3-D02E-4213-99C9-3426BA5D5923.jpeg 2A9510FD-8D4B-4DE0-B90B-F0B0B7B04047.jpeg

    Finally starting to reassemble Maisie, the rear suspension and brakes are complete everything cleaned up and refreshed if reusable, Brake cylinders,Brake hoses & handbrake cables all replaced,
    Some new shocks to make her handle sweet when she finally gets on a road trip

    Started to strip and clean the front suspension but unfortunately found both front brake caliper piston boots are completely perished and pistons badly seized also found the brake master cylinder must have been leaking into the servo as it was full of brake fluid so back to shopping list and add a few more parts to the wish list
    PS excuse the bit of blue overspray on engine bay the engine bay is yet to be painted in a top coat over the raptor liner

    Given all the great work you have done I suggest you whack a coat of paint over the shock absorbers.

    Interior sheet metal completed and in paint slowly coming together almost a shame to cover it all in upholstery :)
