Been busy for last week and weather a bit naf but have done a bit of moving around with silvia (beetle)in her temp council garage nice and dry to which is a bonus,,,, got those lamps made back up only one spring to replace as rusted beyond repair and grill all dry and looking great,,,,Went around van armed with some duct tape and covered all the possible sharp edges so i could fit the winter cover on which did fit very well,, thanks to just campers not the cheapest one but had the £30 off deal going on so worked out at £100,,Also removed both front doors and rear hatch which is what im going to be concentrating on over winter now with the garage door shut and heater on,,, nice and toasty.busy for next week so catch ya in a few weeks.

Ok so thought id tackle the rear tailgate as there doesn't seem too much rust to deal with only one main bit at the bottom and a few small holes where the window popped out,,,, so cut out rusty areas made a few repair pieces and welded in place,,ground flat ish and stripped rest of door which seems fine although not as flat as you would like so knocked out best as possible and a skim of filler will hopefully get her somewhere flat(although shes curved) well you get the point!!,,obviouly i treated areas with some rust killer and rust eating properties then a coat of red oxide under patches,,, managed to get a thin wire brush behind bottom of skin as there was more surface rust and a drop of the rust killer poured over preventing further rusting well for a few months,,,i will give it a dose of waxoil before i put panel back on,,, hopefully do a bit more tomorrow if time permits..

Cheers zeb glad someones likes it!!!!
this week ive had a couple of hours on the rear hatch,,,managed to get the front quite good so flipped it over and worked on the rear which had a dink in so filled it as couldnt get behind to knock out and didnt fancy drilling holes in to pull out with a self tapper,,,,
Ive purchased some epoxy primer which im told is the best thing since sliced bread at protecting bare metal,,so after getting panel ready over last day or so i managed to get a good coat of primer on,,,also brought some panel wipe to help with getting it clean,,
so will leave this to dry and then put a few coats of normal primer before the rustoleom gets a look in,,,
