    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.

    My Mrs got the final colour choice I guessed it was good plan to let her pick colour so I can keep the boxes and boxes of parts coming:):)

    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
